Tugboat Tours!

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to ride a tugboat, and pull a giant barge down the East River? I have. I am fascinated with tugboats because:

1. My Grandpa was a tugboat sailor, and traveled around the globe toting other ships and often found himself in NY Harbor.
2. I have always lived near the perimeters of NYC (the rent is cheaper there people!), and I tend to go running along the river paths. Tugboat spotting while running is a sport to me.

If you’re as weirdly fascinated by tugboats as I am, now is your chance to experience riding one. How often does that opportunity come around? My guess is not very.

Tomorrow at 1pm and 3pm, the tug Pegasus (from 1907!!) is giving FREE 2 hour rides around NY Harbor, starting at the Brooklyn Bridge Park, Pier 6. Get there early, each tour only takes 40 people. Check out this site for more info.

Oh, I wish I lived near NYC. Never have I been on a tugboat.
