New Jersey's official tall ship - the A.J. Meerwald

The A.J. Meerwald - a 115 foot restored Delaware Bay (South River) oyster schooner - is visiting the Hudson (North) River.

The Hudson River Valley National Heritage Area and the Crossroads of the American Revolution Heritage Area, in cooperation with the Nyack Boat Club and the Palisades Interstate Park are sponsoring a cruise on the Hudson River. Driven by over 3,500 square feet of sail, it should get a move on even on a light air summer day!

The boat will depart from the Alpine boat basin.
