Inside the Mary Whalen


In “No City for Old Tankers,” published today in the New York Times, John Leland talks to PortSide New York founder Carolina Salguero about the impending homelessness of her retired oil tanker, the Mary A. Whalen. These pictures were taken by Kerri MacDonald in 2010, just before its move to the Atlantic Basin for a summer of fun including film screenings, tours, and yoga on board, which we drew attention to (and raised some money for) through a fundraiser. Now its future is uncertain, but you can sign the petition to the city to secure a home for the ship or donate directly to PortSide.
