New
Exhibition: The Printed Port

The
Printed Port
 illuminates
an industry central to the development of New York City: job
printing. Printers were a mammoth force in the 19th-century Port of
New York; they produced all manner of printed materials for the
businesses flourishing on South Street, including those in the
maritime trades. The South Street Seaport Museum's printing office
and stationers, Bowne & Co. was one of hundreds of shops that
made up New York's first neighborhood. The exhibition features
original and reproduced artifacts from the South Street Seaport
Museum's collection, including working printing presses. A survey of
printed ephemera presents the tools and techniques involved in their
production. The Museum's working collection artifacts are activated
daily, as the professional printing staff at Bowne & Co. host
live demonstrations and workshops. Entrance to this exhibit is
included with Museum
admission https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pr/957100.

 

NEW:
Visit the Cargo Hold of Wavertree

Included
in the price of admission, the South Street Seaport Museum now offers
a new level of access to 
Wavertree, a
134-year-old ship built of riveted wrought iron and the iconic
centerpiece of the "Street of Ships" at South Street. For
the first time, visitors can take a tour into the belly of the
ship to view the breathtaking main cargo area as tours are
conducted into the massive lower hold space to a viewing platform.
Tickets are available at https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pr/957100.

On-Going
Exhibition:

Millions:
Migrants and Millionaires aboard the Great Liners, 1900-1914, 

familiarizes
viewers with passenger life aboard ocean liners, the defining
differences between travel for wealthy Americans in First Class and
future Americans immigrating to the United States in Third Class, and
the continuing importance that immigration plays in American
history. Millions is one of the first
exhibitions to examine, side-by-side, the dichotomy between First
Class and Third Class passengers aboard ocean liners in the early
20th century. From 1900 to 1914, nearly 13 million immigrants
traveling in Third Class arrived in the United States. During this
same period, America's wealthiest citizens, totaling no more than a
hundred thousand passengers each year, traveled to Europe in First
Class, spending the equivalent of over $11.5 billion on luxury
vacations. Even though First Class and Third Class sailed on the same
ships, their journeys were worlds apart. This exhibition features
both original and reproduced artifacts from the South Street Seaport
Museum's permanent collection including ocean liner memorabilia and
ephemera, ceramics, and luggage trunks from both immigrants and
First-Class passengers. The exhibition highlights a few ship models
of New York Harbor working vessels that played critical roles in
immigration, including a model of the Museum's
lightship Ambrose (LV-87).

 

About
Bowne & Co.,
 New York's oldest operating business under
the same name. Bowne & Co. was established by Robert Bowne in
1775 and grew as a financial printer throughout the 19th and 20th
centuries. In 1975, Bowne & Co. Inc. partnered with the Seaport
Museum to open a 19th-century-style print shop at 211 Water Street in
the South Street Seaport Historic District. Today Bowne and Co. is
comprised of a 19th century Printing Office which houses our new
exhibition in a workspace where we continue the age-old tradition of
job (or small batch) printing alongside our Stationers which serves
as a recreation of 19th-century-style print shop selling gifts and
fine goods.

 

About
the South Street Seaport Museum

South Street Seaport Museum, located in the heart of the historic
seaport district in New York City, preserves and interprets the
history of New York as a great port city. Founded in 1967, and
designated by Congress as America's National Maritime Museum, the
Museum houses an extensive collection of works of art and artifacts,
a maritime reference library, exhibition galleries and education
spaces, working nineteenth century print shops, and an active fleet
of historic vessels that all work to tell the story of "Where
New York Begins."
