On 11 October from 2PM – 4PM we’ll be hosting a unique Hidden Harbor® Tour on the history of NYC maritime art in our working waterfronts. Our tour will take us to places in the harbor where famous scenes have been captured in public art you can visit in NYC!

Expert narrators will give you a unique perspective of NYC through its rich maritime art history – from pre-Colonial times of the Lenape Indians through present day. This Art History Hidden Harbor Tour includes a full-color handout with a synopsis of the art and artists featured – as well as where you can visit these public works of art in person.
