PortSide New York is a new maritime center coming to Red Hook, Brooklyn. The center will encompass a wharf servicing workboats, a museum about contemporary maritime issues, a maritime job center and retail stores. Residents and visitors in the metropolitan area will be able to visit a place where they can see and appreciate workboats from a public-access esplanade. Workboats and local crews will now have access to more comforts than your usual tie-up, and the public will gain an understanding of a working port beyond that of a typical maritime museum.
