​"Sing Sing Swing! An ‘Up the River' Cruise" is planned for Sunday, November 18, 2018, from 1 to 5pm.  All proceeds benefit the Sing Sing Prison Museum that is currently under development in Ossining, NY. Expected to attract visitors from around the world, the museum will tell stories of punishment and reform over the prison's 200-year history and provide a forum for discussion of contemporary criminal justice issues. Swinging to the early music of the Jazz Age, while cruising up the majestic Hudson River from Yonkers to "The Big House" in Ossining and return.  ​Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks will perform totally danceable music on board, all evocative of the era in which Sing Sing was made famous by Hollywood movies. The Nighthawks orchestra is renowned for bringing back the authentic music of the 20s, 30s, and 40s, when jazz greats Cole Porter, Bessie Smith, Louis Armstrong and many more created a truly American songbook.​ Hornblower Cruises & Events is donating the use of their 600-passenger "Hybrid" vessel that has two climate-controlled indoor decks for dancing and an outdoor observation deck for enjoying the fall scenery. The company offers private events such as corporate functions, weddings and holiday parties, and public cruises including bruch, lunch, dinner, happy hour, parties, and sightseeing.  ​Boarding for the Sing Sing cruise is from the Yonkers City Pier starting at 12:30pm for a 1pm departure. The cruise will travel north, allowing guests to view Sing Sing from the water and to hear about plans for the museum. The return trip to Yonkers will dock at 5pm. ​The Yonkers City Pier is located at 71 Water Grant Street within easy walking distance of the Yonkers Train Station, so guests can choose to arrive by train on the scenic Hudson Line, whether coming from New York City or points north. Parking near the pier can be found at the Buena Vista parking garage or at various commuter lots. ​Tickets are $175 per person for the 4-hour boat trip, live big
