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.

In this July 8, 2018 photo, NCL NORWEGIAN ESCAPE is outbound on the Hudson River en route to Bermuda escorted by the historic FDNY fireboat JOHN J. HARVEY.  Built in 1931 and retired in 1994, the HARVEY was recalled to service by the FDNY on 9-11-2001 to pump water at the World Trade Center site until the damaged water mains in lower Manhattan were restored to service. As a public art project commemorating the fireboat’s history and the centenary of World War I, the HARVEY has been repainted to evoke the "Dazzle" camouflage patterns painted on WWI vessels to confuse enemy submarines.
