Much restoration has been done this summer!

Can't make it?  Come for TankerTime  when the main deck is open Mon-Fri, 10:30-5pm (and sometimes later depending how late staff work). Come with your breakfast bagel, lunch, meeting, photo class... 

TankerTime has attracted visitors from around the corner, Europe, the cruise ships on the next pier and one  Mary Whalen from Detroit!

A tanker family grows in Brooklyn
Partner vessel is now alongside!

We now have a tiny tanker family - a large leap forward for PortSide programs.

The 90' LOUIS C is being converted from lube oil tanker to self-propelled barge working in marine maintenance. This is the newest addition to Matt Perricone's fleet. Perricone's other vessels are the Brooklyn Barge, a bar restaurant that offers boating activities and involved in towing and training.  His Diamond Marine Services is the only firm in the country offering training to get a towing endorsement.

Matt Perricone is noteworthy for using his vessels for commercial maritime service and public programming.  

In that spirit, he and PortSide will partner to use the LOUIS C to grow more marine training programs for youth and adults. 
Perricone will also be helping restore the MARY A. WHALEN.

Please donate now to support the expansion of activities like these!
