Seastreak Hits a Home Run With Ferry Service to Yankee Stadium

By Eric Braun of Jersey Sporting News

Atlantic Highlands – I must admit I was a little skeptical about taking a ferry ride into Yankee Stadium after years of driving in. I was giving up the tailgating and playing catch with my son in the parking lot before a game for a boat ride from Atlantic Highlands to the Bronx.

Wow, was I wrong! The crew and management at Seastreak should be nothing but proud of the services they can offer. On Sunday, July 20th, I had the opportunity to catch a game between the New York Yankees and the Cincinnati Reds with my friend Steve Kwartin and our two boys, C.J. Braun and David Kwartin.

Seastreak Hits a Homerun 1

The morning driving to the ferry, it was a little overcast, but by the time we got settled in to our outdoor seats on the upper deck of the ferry, the skies were blue and the sun was beaming down. Once we got going and hit the open waters, the boys got up and went to the front of the ferry to take in the breeze, spraying of the water, and amazing views, while Steve and I kicked back and enjoyed a couple of beers that we purchased on the ferry. So, the entire tailgating aspect that we thought we were going to miss out on, we still managed to get in, thanks to the food and drink services available during the ferry ride.

The memories of the ferry ride into the stadium you cannot get anywhere else. Talking to our son’s about the iconic buildings, structures and views, and seeing the smiles on their faces during the entire outing, are memories that you can’t get every day, and are one’s that will last a lifetime. From the views of Ellis Island to the Statue of Liberty, to the new New York skyline, there is no better way to travel.

Seastreak Hits a Homerun 2

Once at the stadium, the seats that Seastreak had to offer were perfect! We sat in the upper-deck where the boys could see all the action. On this day, it was the last visit to Yankee Stadium of this season for local baseball standout Todd Frazier, who plays for the Reds. In the top of the eighth inning with the Yankees in the lead, Frazier belted a home run to tie the game. Even though we are Yankees fans, we had to celebrate the local kid who is succeeding at the Major League level. The Yankees, however, would win it in the bottom of the ninth to cap-off another great Yankee Stadium experience.

Seastreak Hits a Homerun 3

On our return trip home, Steve and I spoke with a couple from Holmdel, and we all had the same sentiment about the trip, “no better way to travel to a game!” The ferry was clean, had food and drink services, no traffic to deal with, and breathtaking views. I would definitely travel with Seastreak again.

Seastreak does offer daily year-round ferry services from Atlantic Highlands and Highlands, NJ, to Pier 11/Wall Street, East 35th Street, and shuttle service to the World Financial Center. Offering indoor and outdoor seating, full service bar, restrooms and complimentary parking, Seastreak fast passenger catamarans provide the fastest commute to New York City!

Check out the upcoming events at Seastreak.com for service to Mets, Yankees, Army football and more. Or call them at 1-800-BOATRIDE.

Get Ready for Some Football at Beckett’s Bar and Grill

Football season is right around the corner. Time to warm up your vocal cords for yelling at blind referees and cheering at epic touchdowns! It’s also time to pick out your favorite haunts for chowing down while you catch the games. If you’re looking for a good place in Manhattan to grab a pint, make a stop in at Beckett’s Bar and Grill! They’re at 81 Pearl Street, less than half a mile from Pier 11.

Beckett's Bar and Grill 1

The Sports Bar of Stone Street

Beckett’s Bar and Grill has been welcoming sports fans for more than 15 years at their two-story pub. The building’s been around even longer than that. It dates back to 1603, and even housed the first printing press in New York City. These days, it houses 24 television screens, so you won’t miss a play. Not even if you’re outside! Beckett’s has outdoor seating available until the end of November, and four televisions face outside so everyone gets a good view.

Beckett's Bar and Grill 2

You won’t go hungry while you’re complaining about that flag on the play. Beckett’s offers up a menu full of delicious meals and tasty snacks. You can find traditional pub fare, like bangers and mash, or you can fill up on really unique dishes. How does BBQ pulled pork mac and cheese sound?

Tuesday Night Lights

Never been to Beckett’s? Now’s the perfect time to try it. Until September 30, you can take advantage of the Lower Manhattan Tuesdays special, and get a burger with a pint of Guinness (or any draft beer) for $20. Don’t miss out!

Beckett's Bar and Grill 3

Nine out of ten entirely fictional experts agree, the best cure for a rotten day or a busy week is kicking back with a drink and a game. (We don’t talk about the tenth entirely fictional expert. He’s a quack.) Relax on a Seastreak ferry as you head to Manhattan to watch the game. Our ferry captains see better than any NFL referee, guaranteed.

 

Sea you soon!

See New York from a Whole New Angle with a Helicopter Tour

There’s a lot of ways to see New York. We might be biased, but we like the view from the East River and Pier 11, where you can see the city waiting for you. For a whole different way to see New York, you need to get off the ground! Both first-time visitors to the City That Never Sleeps and seasoned veterans can appreciate a whole new way to see New York by taking a helicopter tour. Get a bird’s-eye view of this sprawling metropolis with HeliNY Helicopter Flight Services. They’re at 6 East River Piers, not even half a mile away from Seastreak’s dock!

Helicopter Tours 1

Get To the Chopper

 

Helicopter Flight Services offers several different tours to show off the sights of New York from the most incredible vantage. You’ll cruise above the Hudson River, past the most memorable landmarks and scenic vistas in the area. Have a look at where the Yankees play ball, and go eye to eye with Lady Liberty. For a truly special way to take in New York’s iconic skyline, book a spot on one of the sunset tours.

Helicopter Tours 2

For the best experience, make a reservation for your flight before you visit. While walk-in tours aren’t a problem, they do have an additional fee, and you might need to wait for an available space. Reservations ensure you get the time and tour you’re looking forward to.

(Not Quite) Free Bird

Tuesdays until September 30 are a great time to take that helicopter tour you’ve always wanted. Lower Manhattan Tuesdays has fantastic, money-saving specials on Helicopter Flight Services’s exciting trips. Sign up for the promotion and head for the skies!

Helicopter Tours 3

Take a helicopter ride, then hop on a Seastreak ferry to continue your traveling adventure. Think of it as your own, personal version of Planes, Trains, and Automobiles. After your aerial tour and your luxurious ferry ride, you’ll have Choppers, Catamarans, and…Camels? That third one’s up to you.

 

Sea you soon!

Go Go Curry

Curry is practically an international language of delicious comfort food. When hearing the word “curry”, most people think about Indian foods, like the tasty tikka masala, or a hearty vindaloo. Varieties of curry, however, grace tables all throughout Asia, from Pakistan to Sri Lanka, China, and Japan. Haven’t tried Japanese-style curry yet? Well, you’re in for a treat at Go Go Curry, just about half a mile from Pier 11 at 12 John Street!

Go go curry 3

Number 55

Named after famous New York Yankees outfielder and designated hitter Hideki Matsui’s jersey number, Go Go Curry serves up big dishes of their Kanazawa-style curry. You can recognize it by its thick, dark sauce and its off-beat toppings, like boiled eggs or sausages. It’s a unique style you don’t see too often outside of Japan, but like everything else that’s good, you can find it here in Manhattan.

(Wondering what a baseball player has to do with curry? Hideki Matsui was born in the Kanazawa region, and he’s a pretty big hero there. The word “go” means “five” in Japanese, and his jersey was number 55. If you win big on a game show because you knew this, be sure to tell ‘em you learned it from Seastreak.)

Go Go Curry

Curry-nt Events

Until September 30, you can turn what’s already a great deal on curry into an even better one with Lower Manhattan Tuesdays’s fabulous deals. Get an extra topping when you take advantage of this promotion!

Go go curry 4

Curry some favor with your belly by filling up on Japanese food from the Ishikawa prefecture at Go Go Curry, and then relax aboard a comfy Seastreak ferry on your way home. Don’t forget your doggy bag!

Gary Busey’s One-Man Hamlet

Seastreak can take you to the heart of Manhattan, it’s true, but we’ll also take you to the fringe! The New York International Fringe Festival (FringeNYC in the vernacular) isn’t your average festival, and it doesn’t take itself too seriously. You might not find better proof than the spectacular Gary Busey’s One-Man Hamlet, playing until August 23. The Celebration of Whimsy Theater, at 21A Clinton Street on the Lower East Side, is the venue for this entirely off-the-wall take on the Prince of Denmark.

Gary Busey's One-Man Hamlet

Alas, Poor Hamlet

This is Hamlet, heavy on the ham, as played by Gary Busey impersonator David Carl. It’s a multi-media puppet show extravaganza (not a phrase you hear every day) with David Carl playing Gary Busey playing a puppet playing Hamlet. And Ophelia. And everyone else in the play. The premise is a laugh in itself: Gary Busey, actor of great fame and dubious repute, has decided to prove he still has strong acting chops. To do this, he decides to play all the roles in Shakespeare’s Hamlet.

Gary Busey's One-Man Hamlet 2

Clown Prince of Denmark

What results from this ill-advised show of theatrical bravado is five acts of hysterical fun. Gary Busey’s screwball doppelganger plays each of the play’s scenes in whatever style he feels best. This means a wild ride between beat poetry, musical theater, horror movies, and the stylings of a great (term used loosely) actor. As much as it doesn’t stick to one acting style, this romp through Shakespeare doesn’t stick to the traditional text, either. It’s full of memes and movie bits, and it’s a fabulous time.

To ferry, or not to ferry? That’s an easy answer! Seastreak makes your trip to and from Manhattan an easy voyage. We’ve got a full-service bar aboard our catamarans, and both indoor and outdoor seating. It’s nobler in the mind to pick Seastreak, and to take arms against uncomfortable ferry rides!

Sea you soon!

Pound & Pence

New York’s variety of pubs is one of the many things to love about the city. In the Financial District alone, you can find a host of Irish pubs, not to mention a German bierhaus with bars made in Germany and a New Zealand eatery with Maori-style decor. England is another represented at Pound & Pence, at 55 Liberty Street. This authentic British pub sits just half a mile from Seastreak’s docks at Pier 11.

Pound and pence

Tally-ho!

Pound & Pence blends old times and new with vintage English memorabilia and dark-stained wood accents right alongside the television sets and 10-foot projector screen. You’ll find a tavern-style dining room, a bar right out of Jolly Old England, and snug little booths all but made for a private, cozy meal. Set your sights a little higher and hit the mezzanine to bask near the fireplace in a leather wing-back chair, or to shoot a game of pool with your friends.

Pound & pence

The Nosh

All those decorations don’t mean much without food worth hanging about for. How does a pot pie sound, or some Indian chicken curry? There’s Angus steak burgers and fish & chips as well if you fancy more local dishes.

Pound & Pence 3

The scotch menu is worth trying all by itself! Pound & Pence has a world-class selection which won’t disappoint even the most discerning scotch drinkers.

Want to pay a few less pounds and pence to have delicious pub grub? Sign up with Lower Manhattan Tuesdays, and you can get 25% off your whole bill at Pound & Pence!

Blue Man Group

More than thirty years ago, three friends painted themselves blue and started appearing

on the streets of Manhattan. Because hey, why not? And in New York, what would have

gotten them weird looks anywhere else, turned into a wildly popular show.

blue-man-group

The Blue Man Group’s show now spans the globe and has found all but permanent

homes in theaters across the country. You can still be a part of this innovative and

amazing show by grabbing tickets to see Blue Man Group at off-Broadway’s Astor Place

Theater!

The Best Kind of Blues

Blue Man Group has performed at Astor Place since 1991. This incredible staying power

comes from Blue Man Group’s unique and creative approach to entertainment. More than

60 Blue Men have taken the stage to bring audiences a show unlike any other, one that

will keep both kids and adults transfixed for the more than 90 minute running time.

 

One of the most infamous elements of Blue Man Group’s performance are the “poncho

rows”. Audience members are given rain ponchos to protect them from spattering (but

washable) paint. Let no one say that Blue Man Group doesn’t know how to make a

splash!

Meet the Blue Man Group

Hang around after the show for the chance to meet Blue Man Group’s stars! These

consummate performers stay in character even after the curtain has gone down. In lieu of

autographs, you might find yourself with blue smudges of paint to remember them by!

 

Let Seastreak take you from green seas to Blue Men. Join us for a luxurious – and paint

free – ferry ride to Manhattan and back.

 

Sea you soon!

Route 66 Smokehouse

The words “American cuisine” summon up images of juicy hot dogs and hot apple pie, but our nation’s food legacy has much more to offer. Used to be, the best way to take a tour of our nation was along the historic Route 66 highway, where you could eat your way across America one city at a time. You can still catch some of that magic at Route 66 Smokehouse, down at 46 Stone Street.

Route 66 Smokehouse

Road Trip

Route 66 Smokehouse brings its unique spin on regional American dishes to the Financial District with a menu which should make you hungry looking at it. Get a taste of the South with fried green tomatoes, or a fried oyster po’ boy with sweet potato fries. It wouldn’t be a smokehouse without a pit roast, and Route 66 doesn’t disappoint. Have some sliced brisket, or a rack of ribs and a stack of napkins.

Route 66 Smokehouse 2

Not convinced? How about the selection of over 70 different whiskeys? Route 66 has a selection of ryes and bourbons which ought to satisfy even the most discerning tastes. Beer lovers won’t go home sad, either. There’s plenty of brews to go with the stick-to-your-ribs meals you’ll find here.

Get Your Kicks

Grab a great deal on Route 66’s barbecue, and a beer to wet your whistle, with Lower Manhattan Tuesdays’s special promotion. You can have a half rack of Saint Louis Ribs and a pint of Shiner Bock for just $20. The first taste will have you ready to grab your keys and take a drive down America’s most famous stretch of pavement. (Though it might be easier just to plan another trip with Seastreak to take you back to the restaurant.)

Go from Route 66 to Pier 11, and catch a Seastreak ferry, to complete your flavorful trip to Manhattan. We’re proud to be part of America’s travel traditions, just like the legendary Route 66.

Sea you soon!
