For many Gothamites, personal experience with the New York Harbor is limited to a onetime Circle Line tour or the occasional booze cruise. For a handful, though, boating is a way of life. Climb aboard Red Hook’s historic Lehigh Valley No. 79—the hundred-year-old craft is one of the last surviving railway barges in the country—to view a series of video interviews in which master craftsmen from 13 of today’s still-thriving boatyards reflect on changing technology over 200 years of maritime tradition. Peruse photographs of their boatyards in the Bronx, City Island, Long Island and Upper Nyack in addition to the museum’s collection of historical tools.
