The day after City of Water Day, we attended an awesome craft workshop at the South Street Seaport Museum, where we made sailor's valentines. Kev and I sat off to the side after setting Mikro up at one of the craft tables. The folks running the workshop came over and invited us to participate too, so we did. It was a lot of fun and kind of meditative. Here are our pieces:
Afterwards, we toured the museum.
The Seaport Museum is in trouble, and it really needs support. New Yorkers, if you enjoy offerings like this and want to see a NYC landmark survive, please show your support by visiting, or even better yet, becoming a member of the museum. I would hate to see this local treasure disappear!
After enjoying the museum, we had lunch on Pier 17, which was open for business despite the previous day's pier fire. Pizzeria Uno had an awesome frozen tropical nonalcoholic drink that my food allergic boy was able to enjoy. His dad and I indulged in one of their decadent desserts. Yum (and the pizza was great, too). Perfect meal on a hot summer day. Afterward, we wandered through the shops and took in the view from the pier, including the people learning to fly on the trapeeze nextdoor. We also had a wonderful view of the Clipper City coming into port.
This is where the FDNY cut some holes in the pier in dealing with the fire the day before.
On the way to the subway, we stopped to have a look at the Titanic Memorial Lighthouse:
