Historic Ferry Docks at New Home in Red Hook
RED HOOK — A 107-year-old houseboat has moved to Red Hook after being ousted from its Hoboken home last week, reports say.
The ship, which serves as a bed-and-breakfast, spent eight years at a private pier in Hoboken but relocated to a pier owned by the New Jersey city after Hurricane Sandy struck last year, the paper said.
“After we got here, we knew it was meant to be,” owner Victoria MacKenzie-Childs told the paper, referring to the Brooklyn waterfront neighborhood.
“I want Red Hook to be as grateful to Yankee as Yankee is to Red Hook,” she added.
The Yankee Ferry crew did not provide comment further.
