I Love New York

Update Nov. 29, 2010: This page is one of the most popular on our site, even though the boat show we're discussing in the article below actually happened roughly 3 years ago, as scheduled, shortly after we wrote this post. So if you came to this page looking for NEW information about New York boating, or if you simply love NY, visit our up-to-date NY Boating Resources page on FirstBoat - we think you'll "love" it!

Here's the original post for this page:


Today is the first day of the New York National Boat Show, which has supposedly is in its 103rd round. I say "supposedly" because they also call it the 101st somewhere on the official site, but it might be an oversight. The show is also called the 98th by International Boat Industry, so who really knows. Either way, that's a lot of years to have a boat show - could you imagine the show in its infancy - 1904 or 1905 - when there were hardly any cars around?

Anyway, the NY Boat Show is one of the biggest in the world, and worth a visit. Of course it's all indoors since it's in the middle of winter. You'll find it in the Jacob Javits Center (655 West 34th Street), New York, New York.
