Stroll this barge’s waterfront garden and enjoy the captivating views of the Statue of Liberty and the many workboats and recreational vessels of the New York Harbor.
In addition to changing art exhibits, visitors can discover the history of the Tug and Barge “Lighterage Era” (1860-1960) and how food and commercial goods were transported prior to today’s bridges and tunnels.
On view are bells, barge models and the audio-kinetic ball machine sculpture by George Rhodes that continuously whirls, goes loop-the-loop, plays musical boxes and bounces in mid-air to ring a bell.
