Waterfront Museum, Red Hook, Brooklyn

[Updated 2007.03.14: Added links to Related Posts.]

The Waterfront Museum was one of the highlights of yesterday's walking tour of Red Hook, Brooklyn, associated with the Historic District Council's 13th Annual Preservation Conference. Myself, I could have spent two hours there alone. The story of the barge, not to mention the people and characters involved in saving and restoring it, is fascinating. I want to go back when the water is warmer!

It was also visual overload. I couldn't capture everything. Here's what I got.
