Forgotten Harbor, Found in Art
On Sunday, 11 October 2015 from 2pm – 4pm: The Working Harbor Committee presents a brand new Hidden Harbor® Tour of NYC Maritime Art! Join us on our tour of NYC History Captured in Public Art You Can Visit!
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.
The 2-hour, fully narrated boat tour departs at 2:00pm sharp. Boarding begins at 1:30pm from
Pier 83 in Manhattan located on West 42nd. Street and 12th. Avenue (Hudson River). There is a snack bar on board and restroom facilities. Tickets: $30; $25 seniors. For group sale rates, email email@example.com
A portion of the proceeds from our Hidden Harbor Tours® goes towards funding the Mission of the Working Harbor Committee – to strengthen awareness of the working harbor’s history and vitality today, and its opportunities for the future. WHC produces maritime educational programs, as well as community events such as the annual Great North River Tugboat Race.
