Greenport’s East End Seaport Maritime Museum on Long Island

August 22nd, 2010 by wilfredjoseph

The East End Seaport Maritime Museum is located in Greenport, Long Island.  The Maritime Museum is located in a former railroad station, adjacent to the Shelter Island North Ferry Dock.  The museum features an array of exhibits on the maritime heritage of the area, including displays on the Greenport menhaden fishing industry, lighthouse lenses, the oyster industry, a model ship of the USS Ohio, and more.  One of our favorite exhibits is the Fresnel lenses and the quality of the lenses on display is extremely uncommon.

Children are always welcomed at the Museum and during the month of August, there are two scheduled readings.  On Wednesday, August 11th, list to stories about lighthouses, view photos of lighthouses, and children can make a replica to take.  Wednesday, August 18th gather around to hear tales of pirates and participate in making your very own treasure map to take home.  This is a great way to learn about history and have fun along the way.  Of course, add a special visit to the Village Blacksmith Shop on the weekends and see a real blacksmith at work.

The Annual Maritime Festival will be held on September 24th thru 26th.  This is a special opportunity for locals and visitors to the Greenport area to learn about the East End’s Maritime heritage and contribute towards its preservation.  The Festival is organized by volunteers and the East End Seaport Museum & Marine Foundation.  The Village of Greenport will be packed with a variety of craft and food vendors, local merchants will have exciting displays, and guests can enjoy the array of galleries, antique stores, and restaurants.

Greenport Tea Company for Tea Lovers, on the North Fork of Long Island

Greenport Tea company

Tea lovers unite and add the Greenport Tea Company to your list of places to stop when shopping in Greenport, Long Island.  Once a tea lover, always a tea lover and Greenport Tea Company has everything that you need to enjoy a great cup of tea.  Zagat calls them the “gem” of an afternoon tearoom and says they bring a “touch of England” to the bay.  This is easy to do since one of the owners came from England and knows how to serve a great cup to tea.

The shelves of the Greenport Tea Company are filled with over 50 jars of tea, all dedicated to the pleasure of steeping and drinking first-rate loose-leaf tea.  They even have a dessert tea called Sweet Endings, which was blended by the owners and has scents of caramel, chocolate, and vanilla.  Perhaps you may wish to have a little lemon curd or enjoy High Tea for two?  Once you have tried their tea and returned home, fear not!  They offer on-line shopping on their website and you can replenish your supply of tea or enhance your tea brewing accessories.

At any time during the year, but especially during the winter months, this is a delightful way to spend an afternoon in Greenport on the North Fork of Long Island.

We at Arbor View House also serve tea in the afternoon for our guests.  Come join us here and at the Greenport Tea Company.
