Archipelago New York

Hardly anyone associates New York with an exciting natural landscape. But New York is not a city by the water, but a city in the water: built on several islands and surrounded by such a diverse biotope that cannot be found in any other metropolis. ‘Archipelago New York’ is a modern voyage of discovery on an old sailing yacht into this unknown world. Some 70 islands stretch from the Hudson Delta to the eastern end of Long Island. Four hundred years after the arrival of the first permanent European settlers, we set sail again to discover the islands’ geography and its nature.
