Join ART for a trip into New York City’s past! Since 1994, Lehigh Valley Railroad Barge #79 has been host to the Waterfront Museum, dedicated to preserving and protecting the memory of NYC’s historic waterfront and port. Built in 1914, #79 was one of hundreds of barges owned by the railway companies that used to shuttle cargo across the harbor from New York port to the railheads in Jersey. Today, professional juggler and historical preservationist David Sharps maintains it as a living window into the city’s maritime history. Join us for a tour of the museum and its collection of historic artifacts, on Sunday, August 13th, which will begin promptly at 2:00 PM.

This is an in-person event, limited to 20 people (members are invited to bring guests). The cost is $5 per person. No refunds for cancellations and registration is non-transferable.
