The Harlem Rocket is an exciting high-speed tour on the Hudson River along the famed Harlem and Upper Manhattan waterfront, launched from the award-winning West Harlem Piers. It is as thrilling as it is educational, focusing on the many historical & cultural contributions of the dynamic people who have lived and worked in Harlem and neighboring communities.
The uniquely branded, immersive maritime experience, will be integrated with novel drone, AI, and cloud-storage technologies, enabling guests to capture and share their experiences of the Upper Manhattan waterfront and the NYC skyline like never before. It will also utilize a workforce development model that will create exciting career opportunities and jobs that empower local communities and sustain scalable economic development. This includes exposing area youth to the myriad of career opportunities available in the maritime space, because as we like to say, 'A Kid Can't Be, What A Kid Can't See!'
The Harlem Rocket concept has been met by local government and community leaders with great enthusiasm and it will be the first major new tourist attraction in Harlem in over 30 years! It will also launch the first phase of a multi-phased proposed development of the Harlem Waterfront under the Harlem Waterfront Gateway Initiative (harlemwaterfront.com). With these exciting projects and other uniquely branded immersive maritime experiences in development, Paradise Express is positioned to be one of the world’s most innovative and exciting entertainment companies, creating local jobs and unforgettable experiences.
