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.

This January, PONY Branch member Tom Rinaldi sailed out of Kolkata (formerly Calcutta) aboard what in his view might well be the most interesting ship in the world:  the Shipping Corporation of India's 9,700 GT MV HARSHA VARDHANA, which entered service in 1974 and is indisputably one of the world's very last true ocean liners. Please join us on Friday, May 18th for an evening in which Tom will describe his four-night passage from Kolkata to the Andaman Islands aboard this very unusual ship. See Meetings & Activities for details.
