This Thursday, 15 September, tour 8 miles of Brooklyn’s waterfront industry, from Newtown Creek to Sunset Park on our Brooklyn Waterfront Past & Present Hidden Harbor Tour®.
The 8 miles of Brooklyn shore facing the Harbor’s Upper Bay were once filled with manufacturing, shipping, and commerce. Though apartment towers and landscaped parks now capture attention, Brooklyn still retains active trade and maritime business.
Join Working Harbor Committee for a tour of Brooklyn waterfront industry, past and present. Highlights include Brooklyn Navy Yard, the city’s new waterfront recycling facility at Gowanus Bay, and the working rail-to-barge connection at Brooklyn Army Terminal.
The 2-hour, fully narrated boat tour departs at 6:00pm sharp from Pier 11 Wall Street in Manhattan, on South St. between Wall St. & Gouveneur Lane on Thurs. 15 Sept. Boarding begins at 5:30 pm. Snack bar on board.
