WAVERTREE

The PONY Branch provides its members and guests with monthly illustrated programs in midtown Manhattan, activities such as ship visits, harbor trips, ocean-going cruises at group rates and the annual ocean liner bazaar.

Our website aims to be the premier resource regarding Port of New York passenger shipping, current port news, events that celebrate its history, what to see along the waterfront and how to explore our great harbor.

A special feature is the annual schedule of the port's cruise ship arrivals and departures at the Manhattan, Brooklyn and Bayonne terminals.

On May 21, 2015 the South Street Seaport Museum's 1885 tall ship WAVERTREE (the largest wrought-iron sailing ship afloat) departed her East River berth for a trip across New York Harbor to the Caddell Drydock and Repair Co. shipyard on Staten Island to undergo $10.6 million of restoration work. See FEATURED ARTICLES/ESSAYS for more on the history of the WAVERTREE and photos of her send-off. Photo by Ted Scull.
