Steamboats on the Hudson: The Greenwich Village Waterfront
A history with Liz McEnaney
In the years between 1807 and 1971, the Hudson River was alive with boat traffic. The great Hudson River Day Liners were perhaps the best known of all the vessels – famous for their elegance and speed. New Yorkers and visitors alike experienced the river and the magnificent landscapes from the decks and plush salons of these grand dames.
Join Liz McEnaney, Executive Director of the SS Columbia Project, for an illustrated lecture about how the vessels, such as the Day Liners, shaped the development of the Greenwich Village waterfront.
The SS Columbia Project’s office is located in the historic Ernest Flagg Rectory, in the St. Mark’s Historic District, where GVSHP offices are also located, at 232 East 11th Street.
