Greenpoint Monitor Museum

The Greenpoint Monitor Museum received a grant three years ago from the GCEF to build a museum honoring the USS Monitor on the shores of developing Bushwick Inlet, where the great ship was constructed more than 150 years ago. The project requires a restoration of the ecological shoreline, and the museum has been working with design and engineering firm AECOM to make it happen.

This Saturday, June 9 from 12m to 2pm, the Monitor Museum will host a guided visit of the future museum site. Meet up with folks at 56 Quay Street (at Bushwick Inlet).

Next Wednesday, June 13th from 6:30-8pm the Museum will be hosting a public info meeting  at the Community Room at Bushwick Inlet Park (86 Kent Ave).
