PortSide NewYork seeks to breathe life into the relationship between landside communities and the bassador in this mission is the tanker Mary Whalen.Our approach is to create activities and spaces that benefit both groups, nurture economic connections between the two, foster their mutual appreciation, and make the waterfront neighborhood they share a better place to live, work and visit. PortSide NewYork will develop and operate a Maritime Hub including a museum exploring contemporary maritime practices; host recreational, educational and cultural programs and retail services; and run a maritime career center. PortSide NewYork manifests a new vision for how to revitalize New York City’s waterfront and create waterside public spaces without displacing the maritime functions essential to the city’s transportation infrastructure.
The Toy Museum of NY
First established in 1999 as The Doll and Toy Museum of NYC, the not-for-profit educational museum changed its name to The Toy Museum of NY in Spring 2009 in celebration of its 10th anniversary. The new name reflects the Museum’s coveted distinction, by the New York State Department of Education, as the holder of the only New York Charter for a toy museum.
The exhibitions are set up using the Museum’s innovation and ingenuity, and proven success displaying toys – along with informative signage – to educate children about historic events such as the Invention of the Airplane, Automobiles, Child’s Past and Immigration, just to name a few.
Since its founding, the Museum has curated many successful touring exhibitions that have been visited by thousands of children, parents and teachers. These exhibitions have been on display through partnerships with the New York Transit Museum, the South Street Seaport Museum as well as many other prominent museums throughout the USA and libraries in New York City.
