We’re celebrating the Coast Guard cutter, LILAC, in her 90th year! Learn about this historic steam-powered lighthouse tender that once carried supplies to lighthouses and maintained buoys from the 1930s to early 1970s. LILAC is now a museum ship owned and operated by the LILAC Preservation Project, celebrating its 17th year. Cruise from Chelsea Piers out to a channel marker in NY Harbor with LILAC founder Gerald Weinstein and Museum Director Mary Habstritt. We’ll then cruise to Pier 25 at Hudson River Park to board LILAC for storytelling and a tour on the buoy deck.
