Lots of fun on a “floating showboat and museum” housed aboard a one-of-a-kind restored covered wooden barge listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Located on the upper New York Bay in Brooklyn with views of the Statue of Liberty and the bustle n hustle of the NY Harbor. Learn first hand the geography of the New York Harbor, the history of the Tug and Barge “Lighterage Era” (1860-1984) and how food and commercial goods were transported prior to today’s bridges and tunnels. Experience the exciting story of the rescue of Barge #79 by Captain David Sharps, a clown and juggler, his act “Serious Foolishness” and his audio-kinetic ballmachine sculpture. REGION: Kings County, NYC.
