In the News: Pier 25 Party

••• “Today marks the official debut of Pier 25 as the permanent home to three historic ships. And this auspicious occasion has prompted two like-minded organizations—the North River Historic Ship Society and the Friends of Hudson River Park—to throw a party that will last four days. Planned festivities include free tours of the three historic boats, free excursions on a tug and a fireboat, two evening parties, a band concert aboard a steamship, and a circus on a showboat.” (Broadsheet Daily, which I wish would stop running vivid 9/11 photos; they’re a lot to handle early in the morning)
