Our visit to Greenport included a stop at the East End Seaport Museum and Maritime Foundation. Housed in an 1894 brick building that was once the LIRR Greenport Station house, it is now dedicated to providing information about Greenport’s maritime history. There are two accessible parking spaces in the gravel lot.


Greenport was a whaling and ship-building port. It served as a sea link between New York and Boston. It has a large oyster and fishing industry.


The exhibits on both the first floor and upper level (16 steps) provide a look into Greenport’s rich history with the sea. 


The main floor is easily accessible, although getting around inside can be a bit tight in several places.  There is a small, non accessible restroom.


If you are waiting for the ferry, or just taking a stroll, take some time to visit this unique venue. It may be small, but it is packed with information. We are told that the building is beautifully illuminated at night. 


As always, we at Destination:Accessible, advise you to visit a venue’s website, http://www.eastendseaport.org">www.eastendseaport.org, when planning a visit, to “know before you go.”
