Yes, the New Yorker

The New Yorker with a writeup of events going down at the Waterfront Museum:

“VESSELS & PROFILES OF THE QUADRICENTENNIAL” The Waterfront Museum’s ongoing lecture series about life in and around the harbor continues on July 30 at 7. Carolina Salguero, the director of PortSide New York, an organization housed in a nineteen-thirties coastal tanker called the Mary A. Whalen, talks with the designer Tim Ventimiglia, about the ship’s history and the potential future of Red Hook as a maritime hub and as a place for the arts (the vessel has already been the site of a live opera performance). (Pier 44, Red Hook, Brooklyn. For more information, visit http://www.waterfrontmuseum.org.)
