Great place to visit in Red Hook... A boat restored filled with old items. i was lucky that there was a great jazz concert when I went there. To go there, take the Ikea ferry (free) from Pier 11 in the South East of Manhattan and get put at Fairway. Once here, walk in Red Hook, a very interesting district.

The tour given by David Sharp at the Waterfront Museum was highly informative and very inspirational. David bought a barge(for one dollar) that was mired in mud over 23 years ago and has restored it to its former glory . He has ,with dedicated ardor, garnered artifacts and informative materials to educate us about the past history of this form of travel. He has lovingly preserved for all of us a form of transport that was crucial to the growth and development of this great country. David is a true showman to boot. He performs a juggling act that was part of his early career of entertaining on cruise ships. There is something for everyone on this tour.
In this fast paced world it is truly a step back in time to visit the Waterfront Museum. I hope families will discover this Red Hook Treasure!!

My students loved the waterfront Museum. David Sharp is a born showman. Not only did my students learn about the history of the waterfront, they learned about living on a boat, about a dream, about taking risks etc. In additon they got a juggling show. They saw that when a professional makes a mistake, he pickt the ball up and keeps going.
