PortSide's Sandy recovery
Ship cat Chiclet helps Steve Swift measure
We had rare, antique, replacement parts for the MARY A. WHALEN stored in the shed alongside the tanker during Sandy. These were inundated. During the December holidays, we ran four volunteer days to prevent any permanent damage from the storm.
We have more work to do. Please volunteer!
Hello, working waterfront! We want your Sandy story
PortSide aims to cover waterfront stories others haven't. When the mariners' response to 9/11 was overlooked; PortSide made up for that with an exhibit.
Similarly, PortSide is now looking at how to create programs that tell the maritime Sandy story. Please send us your stories, photos and ideas! We are looking into how the industry prepared for Sandy, rode it out, worked during the storm, was damaged, and served during recovery.
Reach out via email please.
