PortSide NewYork Threatened

PortSide NewYork, one of our area's most lively and unique cultural resources, is facing the loss of their berth at Atlantic Basin which could mean doom for the historic tanker Mary Whalen.  After years of struggling to establish a permanent presence in the Red Hook Container Terminal, new Homeland Security rules make it nearly impossible to hold meaningful activities at the ship.  PortSide is holding an emergency meeting to address the crisis.  More background information here.

When: Monday, February 27.
Time: 6:30p - 8:30p.
Where: LICH corner of Atlantic + Hicks, enter on Hicks Street.
