DOROT Programs


Join DOROT on the Astoria route of the NYC Ferry. Participants will board at Wall Street, examining the historical buildings along the waterfront of Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens, and learn about things to do at each of the ferry’s stops. Stops include Wallabout Bay for a visit to the Brooklyn Navy Yard and other landmarks of the industrial waterfront, the Lower East Side to revisit the history of housing there, Midtown, and Long Island City. Together, participants will learn about the river’s barge traffic, past and present, and discuss the natural and manmade islands that stretch along the river. Led by Andrew Gustafson, Turnstile Tours
