Lightship Nantucket 612. Photo by Jim Henderson (PD)


Friend of WHC Claude Scales who writes the Brooklyn Heights Blog, noticed a visitor to our shining harbor the other day.

Lightship Nantucket WLV 612 has come to town for the summer! She’s moored at Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Pier 5, and there are some murmurs about onboard ships tour offerings, but there is no confirmed info about that on their website at this time. If I hear anything more firm, I will let you all know!

Join us this Sunday May 1st, on WHC’s Hidden Harbor Tour® Forgotten Harbor, Found in Art and you’ll definitely see her as we cruise along! Get tickets here!
