Tall Ships of America 2015
History comes to life with three masts and a crows nest at Long Island’s Greenport Village this year with a 4th of July visit from the Tall Ships of America 2015!
Greenport village has a long and storied history, having first been settled in the 1600’s to become a major whaling and shipbuilding port. Then came the fishing and huge oyster industries which brought the railroad and, consequently, over-fishing. Greenport, like many ports, made changes to adapt and improve itself, becoming a major destination for thousands of visitors throughout the year.
Thus, it should come as no surprise that Greenport would have the honor of playing host to the Tall Ships of America 2015 – and not on just any date but on Independence Day, July 4th, 2015!

Greenport Harbor BrewingWe’ve talked an awful lot about North Fork wineries recently, so I felt it was time to shift the focus on a similar subject: Long Island craft breweries. Did you know there are nearly 30 breweries or brewpubs on Long Island, including our very own Greenport Harbor Brewing?
Greenport Harbor Brewing has been brewing craft beer on Long Island’s North Fork since July of 2009. Initially producing a modest 3,000 barrels of beer a year, Greenport Harbor Brewing’s popularity outstripped its production capacity.
