Visiting New York

Going ashore in New York

When you start exploring a city, you need to have a good plan in hand, especially if your intention is to visit as much as possible in a short period of time. A few day holiday may offer you a very clear image of any capital or big city in the world, but when your holiday is just a short visit or only a few hour trip, you might need more than just a well done plan.

Going ashore in New York, USA

If the port container vessel you are travelling with (or just working on) is calling New York, most probably you will arrive in one of the ports belonging to the state of New Jersey, which is located opposite from Manhattan, on the other side of Hudson River. The most important ports from this area are Port Elizabeth, Newark and Raritan. Under these circumstances, visiting Manhattan is always very difficult to accomplish, even for those well trained travelers.
