Looking for a couple of fun hours floating down the Hudson River? Book a dinner cruise on the Capt JP. The food is great and the views are even greater!

When unsure, ask questions. I called the Captain JP Cruise Lines - they are handicapped accessible up to the second floor, then it is stairs. Hope this is helpful.
