PortSide opened the MARY A. WHALEN for Sunday of OHNY Weekend. Our ship MARY worked her magic, and so did our ship cat Chiclet who was a magnet in her own right. Our "Salty Selfies" photo station provided great souvenir moments. We believe in having fun while learning maritime history! If you missed this, come enjoy the main deck for #TankerTime!
I am concerned that superstorm Sandy could drown a good idea.

"Activation" is urban planner speak for use them more.

In their own words, PortSide's three interns during summer 2015 describe the experience. The three attend WHSAD and are from Red Hook, Carroll Gardens and Maspeth neighborhoods in NYC.
