Manhattan by Sail (a $95 value). The Jazz Sail runs each Wednesday at 9:30 p.m. during July, August, and September.
Manhattan by Sail's soaring topsail schooner Clipper City sweeps effortlessly across New York Harbor, offering impressive vistas and leaving gleeful murmurs in its wake. Drift on warm arpeggio streams as guitarist Joe Cohn and sax virtuoso Avram Fefer lead an onboard band through bebop, cool jazz, and unsubtle flattery of the wind. Groupon holders of legal drinking age receive a complimentary serving of beer, wine, or champagne and may refuel their cocktail caverns at an added cost from the ship's full bar. The sailboat, which is a 158-foot steel replica of a 19th-century vessel, cuts serenely through the water, affording hushed moments of reverie and ample time to reflect upon what truly makes a good episode of Power Rangers.
