If you went onto the Promenade today, you likely noticed the lightship Nantucket, which formerly warned mariners away from the shoals south of Nantucket Island, docked at the northwest corner of Pier 5, Brooklyn Bridge Park. She’s just inside the new marina, scheduled to open soon.
We’re advised Nantucket will remain at BBP “through the season.” As soon as we have more details, such as if and when she’ll be open for public tours, we’ll let you know. Addendum: We have this word from “Canonchet” (comment below):
Will be berthed at the new park marina this summer, available for rental: parties, charter cruises etc – original exterior, de luxe megayacht interior.
