Riverside Park Virtual Tour
9) 79th Street Boat Basin
From the Boat Basin you can see and hear the hypnotic activity of boat life. Many of the moored boats house water-borne New Yorkers who make this their home. On a sunny weekend, yachts pull in to refuel and sail boats glide by. If you feel like sitting and watching, a good place is the tree-shade hillside north of the Boat Basin.
