Open NYC’s piers to historic ships! Save PortSide's MARY A. WHALEN!

Help the historic ship of PortSide NewYork, the MARY A. WHALEN, find a home NOW so she does not go to the scrap heap!

Historic ships provide a rich connection to the past and future of this waterfront city; but they have a hard time getting access to NYC piers.

We need to push NYC to create a new docking policy that makes great cultural resources like the MARY A. WHALEN sustainable and available to New Yorkers today--and in the years to come.

Help the MARY A. WHALEN--and all historic ships in NYC--by signing this petition!
