For centuries, schooners carrying goods down the Hudson River from upstate docked at South Street Seaport, to distribute their cargo to local markets or to transfer their cargo onto ocean-bound ships to more distant destinations. This trade, and the industries it supported, from banking to warehousing to printing, helped make New York City into a global commercial and then cultural capital. Apollonia is the Hudson Valley’s carbon-neutral, wind-powered merchant vessel that harkens back to these earlier times. Order a monthly Boat Box subscription for sustainable sail freight delivery of goods sourced from local shipping partners, from maple syrup to hot sauce to soap, and pick it up on Pier 16. Or just come and chat with the crew.
