This Saturday, 17 September, 2016, the SS John W Brown will be operating steam all day! Open for ships tours everyday from 10 am – 4 pm, and on Saturday, visitors will have the extra treat of seeing her 14 ton triple-expansion steam engine at work.

SS John W Brown is one of two Liberty Ships that remain today. Launched in 1942, she was one of over 2,700 Liberty Ships built to transport troops and supplies during WWII. After the war, SS John W Brown became a floating high school for maritime training, right here in NYC.
