Our Board of Directors is made up of preservationists involved in maritime restoration projects in New York City. Many own or are involved with individual historic vessels and educational programs in New York Harbor.

Collectively, we advocate for the presence of historic ships at neighborhood piers along our water highways. Current sites include docking facilities in Hudson River Park and Red Hook, Brooklyn. We hope to expand our reach to include such locations as Brooklyn Bridge Park, the New Stapleton Waterfront, Governors Island and many others.

NRHSS’s activities include coordinating with the US Coast Guard regarding vessel certifications, producing maritime happenings, and assisting other like-minded organizations.
