During the summer of 1976, as part of the Bicentennial celebration, Gateway National Recreation Area sponsored ten day-long boat trips from Manhattan and Hoboken, New Jersey to the park. In an attempt to begin the park experience aboard the ship, various programming techniques were tried including narrations, poetry, music, dance, arts and crafts, and information packets. The effectiveness of these techniques are discussed as well as possibilities for more in-depth programming including classes and audio-visual centers that may be adaptable to commuter situations.
