For City of Water Day 2014 (check it), Yankee Ferry will open her gangway (11:00 am – 3:00 pm), giving people the opportunity to have a thorough glimpse into this historic vessel, and meet the fantastic and rugged crew who make it all happen. There are secret doors, canon balls, swings, gongs, huge generators, and lots of animals.
This is a rare opportunity to get an intimate walkthrough of this hidden treasure!
The tour will coincide with the tour of the Gowanus Bay Terminal (GBX) and the Loujaine, guided by John Quadrozzi, Jr.
Yankee Ferry is located on the Gowanus Bay Terminal, 699 Columbia St. in South Red Hook, Brooklyn. The best way to get here is by the FREE IKEA ferry from Wall St, then walk eastward along the waterfront path for 5 minutes. The closest subway is the F and G train at the Smith-9th St Stop, and the B57 and B61 drops off at IKEA, also a 5 minute walk away. If you drive, there is ample parking on the Columbia St just south of the entrance to GBX.
Please meet at the entrance of the property, as that ail be the starting point of the tour.
