Looks like the hull of the Falls, doesn’t it? It’s not.

The Tribeca Trib – High Anxiety Over Fate of Seaport Museum and Its Ships.

The above link came from the “Save Our Ships” Facebook page.

The photos of the deck and rust on Peking make me very sad. Reading the account of what is going on in New York is like reliving what happened here in 2008.

The article states:

“Volunteers say they have seen a surveyor’s report that states that the Peking’s bowsprit, which extends above the bustling pier, is in danger of collapsing—and could bring the ship’s massive web of rigging down with it.”

From what I understand, the person who did the survey of Peking, also did the one for the Falls. Best to leave it at that.
