In the News: The Tribeca Home of Maman’s Founders

••• Sometime next spring, the Peking [above] docked at the South Street Seaport “will set off once again, transported by a docking ship across the Atlantic Ocean for what will most likely be its final voyage.” It’s going to Germany. The South Street Seaport Museum “is also close to completing an $11 million renovation of the Wavertree, the other tall-mast sailing ship that has long called the South Street Seaport home. One of the last surviving wrought-iron sailing ships in the world, the Wavertree has been undergoing repairs at a shipyard on Staten Island. If all goes according to plan, it will return just as the Peking departs. […] Instead of having two ships in failing condition, the museum would have one in both top condition and with a firm connection to New York City.” —New York Times
