PortSide TankerTime

Enjoy access to the Mary A. Whalen, good for the whole family!

DetailsSeptember 10, 2017

During TankerTime, you can enjoy the main deck of the tanker MARY A. WHALEN set with all sorts of furniture. Lounge in a hammock, lunch at a picnic table, meet over a cafe table, read books from our maritime library while you are stretched out in a lounge chair, bring the kids here instead of the same old playground!

WHERE: Ship MARY WHALEN, Pier 11, Atlantic Basin, Red Hook, Brooklyn. Our NYC ferry stop for Red Hook is right next to the ship.

WHEN: M-F 10am to 6pm as long as the weather is warm enough.
Second Sundays, 5pm to midnight, May through September. At 9 pm, the musicians jam “WaterStories of the Wine Dark Sea” starts and runs until midnight.

Ship cat Chiclet invites you to browse PortSide’s maritime library, but she insists that all dogs be on a leash.

More about TankerTime and “WaterStories of the Wine Dark Sea” can be found here.
