Ventura is located at the World Financial Center, North Cove Marina. The WFC is on the Hudson River, between Vesey and Liberty Streets, both of which join West Street, also known as the West Side Highway.
Check your subway maps for the nearest trains. A, E, C, 2, 3 all stop nearby and require a walk across West Street to the World Financial Center. From these subway stops it is about a 10 minute walk.
QUICK DIRECTIONS IN A CAB
If you are in a cab, have the driver drop you on the corner of North End Avenue and Vesey Street. This will put you about 100 yards from the boat. Walk south on North End, passing the vehicle security booth, and you will be at the marina. Ventura will be the large white sailboat with her name in real gold leaf, on those oh so pretty varnished mahogany nameboards on the front (bow, you landlubber!) of the yacht.
Ventura is located near the Northeast corner of the marina, directly in front of the Winter Garden Pavillion, which is the large, glass atrium. (The Winter Garden also makes a nice rendezvous point for your guests prior to your boarding.) Look for our signature twin American flags flying from the mast!
You can reach the World Financial Center and North Cove marina by subway and a short walk west to Hudson River. The following trains are best. By the N or R Train, get off at Cortland Street and walk west one block across the pedestrian sky bridge to the World Financial Center. Via the Lexington Avenue Line, get off at Fulton Street or Wall Street and walk west to the pedestrian bridges over West Street to the World Financial Center. The IRT (1,9) and A,C,E trains also go to the former World Trade Center site and stop at Chambers or Cortland Street. Walk west and follow directions to the World Financial and North Cove.
Take West Street (West Side Highway) southbound and turn west onto Liberty Street. (This is directly across the street from the World Trade Center). Parking is available near the corner of Liberty Street and South End Avenue at the Gateway Garage. Liberty Street ends at the small park along the southeast corner of the North Cove Marina.
You can take New York Waterways or the Liberty Statue Park (Jersey City) water taxi directly to the World Financial Center, landing you within less than a five minute walk to Ventura at North Cove. Currently, the water taxi drops you at North Cove itself, about 100 feet from the yacht. NY Waterways lands you north to the marina about 300 yards from Ventura. If taking NY Waterways, walk south along the Hudson until you reach the North Cove Marina. Ventura is the northeast corner, opposite of the Winter Garden (glass atrium) Pavillion.
