Hundreds of business leaders attended the Queens Chamber of Commerce’s second annual Boat Cruise into Summer on July 18.
Departing from Flushing Bay and cruising past LaGuardia Airport, Cornell Tech Center, and the United Nations, the event provided food, drinks and views of New York City for hundreds of participants.
Elected and city officials joined the chamber’s event, including Deputy Mayor for Housing and Economic Development Alicia Glen, Councilman Rory Lancman and State Senator Jose Peralta.
The boat cruise also offered business leaders from all sectors an opportunity to network and make new contacts.
Participants also filled the dance floor on the top deck. As the boat passed LaGuardia Airport, planes flew overhead to everyone’s delight.
By sunset the cruise docked back at Flushing Bay. Before departing, all participants received a free tote bag and a warm embrace by the Queens Chamber of Commerce.
