Join the AIANY Women in Architecture Committee for a summer networking event on board Schooner Pioneer!
Schooner Pioneer is a historic vessel built in 1885 owned and operated by the South Street Seaport Museum. August is a perfect time to get out on the water and get a new perspective on New York City. The group will assemble at the end of Pier 16 at the South Street Seaport at 3:45PM for boarding. The boat will depart promptly at 4:00PM. There will not be any refunds if you miss the departure.
Pioneer was built as a sloop in Marcus Hook, PA to carry sand mined near the mouth of the Delaware Bay to an iron foundry in Chester, PA. Ten years later, she was re-rigged as a schooner. Almost all American cargo sloops and schooners were wood, but because she was built in what was then this country’s center of iron shipbuilding, Pioneer had a wrought iron hull. She was the first of only two cargo sloops built of iron in this country and is the only iron-hulled American merchant sailing vessel still in existence.
By 1930, when new owners moved her from the Delaware River to Massachusetts, she had been fitted with an engine and was no longer using sails. In 1966, she was substantially rebuilt and turned into a sailing vessel once again. Today she piles the waters of New York Harbor carrying adults and children instead of cargo in her role as a piece of living history.
Light snacks and wine included in ticket fee.
