Bayonne, New Jersey is home to Cape Liberty, one of the newest and most modern Ports of Call in the United States, and a terrific destination for those wanting to explore this fascinating historical city and the surrounding New York Metropolitan area. Bayonne was originally known as Bergen Neck, founded by the Dutch in the 17th century as a vital trading post. For more than 400 years, Bayonne has enjoyed a colorful history as a ship and yacht-building hub, a naval supply center, and the home port of many of the region's fisherman and oysterman.
Bayonne is a city that, although situated in one of the densest metropolitan areas in the world, has still managed to retain a charming, welcoming personality that guests will surely come to love as they embark on their discoveries of the surrounding sights and attractions. However, one of the greatest draws of Cape Liberty, and Bayonne itself, is its close proximity to New York City. If you d like to view the city from afar, consider taking a 3 hour romantic evening cruise around the island of Manhattan. Better yet, take the short, 7 mile trip to Manhattan and marvel at this phenomenal center of world culture, commerce and cuisine. From the world-class museums such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim, and the Museum of Modern Art, to the awe inspiring skyscrapers such as the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building, you ll treat yourself to a feast for the senses that you won t soon forget. The diversity and originality that New York City has to offer, borough by borough and street by street, is truly incredible. Historic Battery Park is an educational mecca. Little Italy and Chinatown have marvelously maintained their immigrant population and heritage. Today they offer a cultural richness that is truly a gift to the city. Soho (South of Houston St.) and Tribeca (Triangle Below Canal St.) exist on the cutting edge of fashion and style, and are proof of an industrial area s potential for chic. Gramercy Park will make you feel as if you have somehow made your way to London. Chelsea is a hip, artsy region that is home to many of New York s photography studios and galleries. These are just some of the city s gems, each offering a unique flavor and pace. Visitors could spend days in any one of them, but for the ultimate New York experience, make your trip a m'lange of them all. To truly see the city could take a lifetime, but sampling from the bits and pieces of New York s variety is a treat for any tourist.
