Big Box on the Basin


Tonight, the Metropolitan Waterfront Alliance, the Save the Graving Dock Committee and the Roebling Chapter, Society for Industrial Archeology will present Big Box on the Basin: Retaining Red Hook’s Last Working Shipyard at the Urban Center, 457 Madison Avenue at 51st Street.

Alternative plans to the Red Hook Ikea store will be considered, and the exhibition will run until May 26. It seems that it’s a little late for this program, as demolition of the shipyard is currently underway. But it should be fun to see the pictures and learn about history of the venerable Red Hook waterfront.

See Waterwire,net for details.
