Morning View - Barge #79

Lehigh Valley Barge #79 is the last remaining of the covered wooden barges that used to ship cargo across New York Harbor. Moored in Red Hook, Brooklyn, today it serves as a floating museum of that industry. During summer the barge is towed by a tugboat for classroom tours of the harbor. Barge #79 is on the National Registry of Historic Places.
