Sorry for the late posting today, I took a much-needed morning off before we head into busy time – fun-season! With so many festivals and events coming up, it’s going to be a great July!
Our own ship spotter, John Skelson‘s photo exhibit “Tugboats – Workhorses of NY Harbor” opens today 5 July onboard the historic lighthouse tender Lilac moored at Pier 25 in lower Manhattan. Opening reception is Tuesday 8 July from 6-9 pm. Tug Pegasus will be moored next to Lilac Tuesday night, so there will be opportunity for ship tours.
City of Water Day, hosted by the Metropolitan Waterfront Alliance, is coming up next Saturday, 12 July with free boat rides, food, music and exhibits. Check out all the fun happenings at their website here.
Join us on our next Hidden Harbor Tour® of Port Newark, hosted by the Working Harbor Committee in partnership with Circle Line Sightseeing. Saturday 19 July, at 11 am. Our 2.5 hour cruise behind the scenes of our great container port terminals, oodles of tugboats at work on the KVK, moving gargantuan infrastructure with ease through our harbor. Reservations can be booked here.
