Join us for a day ashore and afloat in the hip and historic Red Hook area of Brooklyn!
May 4th, 2019
Come to an event on the historic ship MARY A. WHALEN, home of PortSide NewYork. Beer, wine, snacks aboard while the ship stays at the dock. Their Red Hook Water Stories crew will talk about the history of Norwegians in Red Hook and working on their ship.
There is an optional walking tour beforehand. Join us at 2:30pm outside the 34th Street F subway stop or as we emerge in Brooklyn.
If you can’t make the walking tour, here are directions to the MARY A. WHALEN, docked at the south end of Pier 11, Atlantic Basin. Nearest street corner is Pioneer & Conover Streets. There is plenty of free parking next to the ship or take the NYC Ferry.
After cocktails, and hopefully a sighting of Chiclet, the ship cat, we will catch the sunset a few blocks away at Sunny’s Bar for the after party!
