Enthusiastic crowd at last night's exhibition reception

There must have been well over 200 people attending yesterday evening's reception and award ceremony for the "Contemporary NY Waterways" and "History Panorama" exhibition at the Salmagundi Club. It was one of the swankiest receptions I've attended there with a jazz trio, hot appetizers being passed by white-uniformed waiters, not to mention the usual wine and cheese. I got a lot of questions about "Lehigh Valley Barge at Red Hook" (image of it is in an entry below) - where is it docked exactly, how is it used today (it's now the Waterfront Museum); and a couple of people offered historical information about how barges were an important part of NYC history way back when.  All this in celebration of the Dutch discovery of Manhattan 400 years ago!
