On my morning walk yesterday I looked out from the Promenade and saw the schooner Mystic Whaler approaching the reach of water between Governors Island and Manhattan. I knew she was supposed to dock at Pier 5, but her course seemed to be taking her into the East River, so I continued down to Pier 1 in Brooklyn Bridge Park.
Here she is, sailing past Pier 1, toward the Brooklyn Bridge.
I figured Mystic Whaler would come about and head for her berth soon, so I left Pier 1 and headed for Pier 5, arriving there just as the schooner approached.
A crew member secures her bow line; a few minutes later she was ready to receive visitors. She’s there through this afternoon (Sunday, May 19).
