South Street Seaport Historic District

The South Street Seaport Museum is home to the nation's largest fleet of privately maintained historic vessels. The vessels represent a range of craft typical of the kinds of cargo ships and working vessels that once filled New York Harbor in the 19th and early 20th century, when most freight and people traveled by water. The museum vessels are of three types:
Stationary Vessels

Peking, 1911; Wavertree, 1885; and Ambrose, 1908; are permanently moored at the museum pier and are open for public visitation.

Training Vessels

Pioneer, 1885; Lettie G. Howard, 1893; and W.O. Decker, 1930; offer sail training, public sails and charter opportunities.

Workhorses

Marion M., 1932; and Progress work barge are used by Museum staff and crew to help maintain piers and move equipment.
