Please note: You are viewing an archived page for a program, event, or activitiy that has already taken place. in most cases these pages are no longer actively maintained and because of that may contain inaccurate or out-of-date information. These pages are left publicly viewable to preserve institutional memory and to allow the public to learn more about the types of programs, activities, and content created and made available by the South Street Seaport Museum throughout its history.
Watch our Director of Collections, Martina Caruso, in conversation with Turnstile Tours as she shares some of the highlights among the museum’s 28,000+ artifacts and 55,000+ archival materials that document the rise of New York as a port city. In honor of the visit of the hospital ship USNS Comfort, they looked at items related to past hospital ships that have visited New York, and examined some fascinating shipbuilding tools, including those used by workers at the Brooklyn Navy Yard and other nearby shipyards.
