The pilot house of the New York Central Tugboat #31 was set up as a ticket booth at the South Street Seaport Museum from a grant provided by the Seaman's Savings Bank.  Built in 1923 in Brooklyn, NY the tug carried a crew of six and in 1970 it was sold to Witte Salvage in Rossville, Staten Island. This pilot house may be one of the few artifacts that is left of the New York Central fleet of tugboats.

Hello waterlevel....I can't imagine that the pilot house survived Hurricane Sandy. I think it was located in the vicinity of that back hoe....Tom
