Spuyten Duyvil picknick Row

This is the little brother of the ‘Hudson Valley History Tour’.

Row north from Manhattan up the Hudson River and see how the skyline of New York City keeps getting smaller. We guide you to some interesting historical landmarks and end in the Yonkers, founded in 1646. We will have lunch in Yonkers at Xaviars on the Hudson, then row back and enjoy the view over the Hudson Valley, the same water where Giovanni da Verrazano discovered the Hudson in 1524.
