The LILAC Steamship at Pier 25 Photo

At Pier 25, found off the Hudson River and at where Northmoore Street meets the West Side Highway, is the LILAC; a historic steamship, decommissioned in 1972 and resting there on the waters awaiting everyone’s arrival. Arrival, meaning we’re all welcomed to admire her from the pier itself; yet another great reason to visit this area, aside from the great views of Lower Manhattan’s skyscrapers!
As of the time of this writing, according to the official Hudson River Park page dedicated to this beauty, the ship is open to the public for ship tours and viewing exhibits from 4:00 – 7:00 pm on Thursdays and from 2:00 – 7:00 pm on Saturdays and Sundays. Although you’d be advised to double check their site just in case any of this has changed.
You may, as well, want to visit the LILAC Preservation Project website which has additional information regarding the LILAC. According to them, it is America’s only surviving steam-powered lighthouse tender and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
