The New York Harbor is a vital waterway for commuters, commerce and recreation—and this museum serves to promote historic preservation and protect the maritime heritage of one of the City’s most distinctive areas. Located in Red Hook, the museum features everything from a 94-year-old wooden barge to tugboats and a showboat captain’s attire. Group tours are welcome for tourists and schools.
