The Waterfront Museum is dedicated to
celebrating the New York City waterfront and invites the public, schools
and private groups to utilize their restored barge in Brooklyn. In
1998, the Barge was designated by the United Nations as the "Regional
Craft of the Year of the Oceans" for The Waterfront Museum's work in
opening up waterfronts for the use and enjoyment of the general public.
The Waterfront Museum located in the Lehigh Valley Barge No. 79, a
wooden-covered cargo barge. The barge is the only surviving example of
its kind and is anchored at Pier 44 off Conover Street. The museum
sponsors educational programs, circus acts and a sunset music series. What makes the
location so wonderful are the fantastic sunsets and amazing waterfront
