The Mary Whalen gets new engine parts

This weekend, volunteers at Portside NY helped to clean new engine parts for the tanker Mary Whalen, which were recently acquired from a similar ship that was scrapped in Seattle. These parts are a big step in the ongoing restoration of the tanker, and were an important find as these types of ships and their parts are growing increasinlgy scarce.

We're always glad to hear about the progress of the Mary Whalen, as it plays an important role in maintaining the waterfront history of our area and offers great cultural programs and events.
