Hermione, the hand crafted replica of Lafayette’s 18th century ship arrived in NY Harbor this morning!
Hosted by South Street Seaport Museum, Hermione will be docked at Pier 15 at the South Street Seaport for the next few days next to the Street of Ships. Get first-hand experience on public ship tours, open tomorrow and Friday, July 2-3, 2015 from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm. (Did you know that 16th century replica Spanish galleon El Galéon would be there too?!)
And don’t miss the “People’s Parade of Ships” on Saturday July 4th!
Hermione together with 100 participating vessels will sail through the Verrazano, up the harbor passing the Statue of Liberty and up the North (Hudson) River to the USS Intrepid museum and back down river to Governors Island.
All the action starts around 11 am!
