Optional activities

Walk with a Belgian

Together with Patrick van Rosendaal and the BENY team, Connections organizes city walking tours in New York every day. Patrick is a Belgian New Yorker, trend watcher and enthusiastic guide who’ll be happy to share his passion for New York with you. We’ll treat you to an unforgettable stroll through Manhattan or Brooklyn!

BE NY Tours
The Midtown Manhattan tour takes you to the main hotspots in the heart of Manhattan, ideal for a first visit (Monday + Friday). NoHo, SoHo, Little Italy and China Town uncovers hidden gems for you in Lower Manhattan (Thursday). Downtown to Brooklyn takes you from the financial heartbeat of Wall Street to Williamsburg, the trendiest district in Brooklyn (Tuesday + Saturday). The Meatpacking District, Chelsea & Hudson Yards tour takes you from the old warehouses via the High Line to the brand-new penthouses (Wednesday).

SUMMIT One Vanderbilt

The not-to-be-missed novelty in New York is undoubtedly SUMMIT One Vanderbilt. A platform at a height of 310 m may not be exceptional in Manhattan. What is unique is Kenzo Digital's interactive art installation SUMMIT AIR, with glass and mirrors above, beside and below you.

Daredevils step onto the glass ledges above Madison Avenue in SUMMIT LEVITATION. In the AFFINITY space with silver balloons, your experience will be playful and interactive. Go a little higher still from the 91st to the 93rd floor and step outside onto the terrace. In clear weather, you can see as far as 100 km.

Evening cruise on the Hudson River

Experience the magic of an evening cruise on the Hudson River, where you'll be enveloped by a gentle sea breeze and admire the magnificent spectacle of the illuminated skylines of Manhattan, New Jersey and Brooklyn. This unique experience takes on its full meaning in the golden hour, when the evening sun bathes the surroundings in a warm glow.

The magic continues as you sail under the impressive BMW bridges (Brooklyn, Manhattan and Williamsburg), each with its own architectural splendor that is even more impressive at night. The return to port, in the lively Midtown district, adds an extra touch of relaxation and satisfaction to this two-hour cruise, departing daily at 7 p.m.
