The Last Oyster Barge

This is this last surviving New York City oyster barge. Built circa 1830, she has been aground in Fair Haven Connecticut for the last hundred years . After a long life as an oyster tavern in Lower Manhattan, she traveled by water to Fair Haven, where over the years she operated as a speakeasy, a Yale University dive bar,  and popular local restaurant.

Abandoned since the 1980's and is in need of serious restoration, she has been facing imminent demolition.
