Last Saturday, the steamship Lilac had an open house at Pier 25 in Tribeca. There was an exhibition by The River Project — the marine science field station based at Pier 40, at West
Houston St. — onboard showcasing the Hudson’s ecosystem. Traps were pulled up from moorings on the Lilac’s side to see what aquatic life was around the ship. A blue crab and a seahorse, above — which was pulled up the week before and was swimming in a tank — were interesting examples that delighted old and young visitors alike.
