This trip will take you down the Hackensack River, the entire length of Newark Bay to Staten Island and back to explore this integral part of New York Harbor. Among other sights, we will pass Kearny Point, the former site of Federal Shipbuilding & Drydock Co., where hundreds of warships, Liberty and Victory ships were built during the Second World War; and the busy port facilities of Ports Newark and Elizabeth with ocean-going cargo vessels being loaded and unloaded. On the way back upriver we explore the Bayonne bayshore, home to numerous parks and historic sites.
