PortSide uses of the MARY

PortSide NewYork created this Red Hook WaterStories product.

PortSide is a maritime non-profit founded in Red Hook in 2005.

Our goal is to create a waterfront center with a landing for boats, a home for the MARY A. WHALEN, and more programs and services in building space adjoining the vessels.

The deck of the Mary A Whalen is generally open to the public during regular business hours and for special events.  See our calendar for upcoming events or sign up for the occasional newsletter to be notified. 


PortSide NewYork is a living lab for better urban waterways. PortSide brings WaterStories to life.

We combine the working waterfront, public access and community development.

PortSide brings the communities ashore and afloat together, for the benefit of all.

PortSide NewYork produces and hosts WaterStories programs in arts, education, preservation, resiliency, workforce and harbor advocacy on and off our flagship, the historic tanker MARY A. WHALEN.

We won a White House award and honors from the NYS Senate for our hurricane Sandy recovery work.
