We have reserved 20 spaces aboard the iconic Tall Sail Schooner The Pioneer (circa 1885). See the sights of New York Harbor from the decks of the historic 130-year-old schooner. The vessel, first launched in 1885, was built as an iron-hulled sloop to carry cargo along the Delaware River and was even featured in the pilot of Boardwalk Empire. The group will meet at the ship at 6:30pm.
