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