“Alone Together” Virtual Lecture – “Night Boats to New England: When Splendor Sailed L.I. Sound”

Saturday, April 17 2021 | 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Sat., April 17th @ 5pm



Presented by John Henry. Well into the 20th century passenger steamers left New York City every night of the year headed eastward on the Sound bound for New London, Newport, Providence and Boston. Grandest of all were the magnificently appointed ships of the Fall River Line, which operated from 1847 to 1937 between New York, Newport and Fall River. Renowned for the opulence of their interiors, the dependability of their service, and their pedigreed passengers, they made the line a beloved American institution.
