Above is the inside of NMHS headquarters on the Brooklyn waterfront in New York. Here, Trustee Norman Brouwer, at left, has given a manuscript for your editor to ponder, while associate Editor Ted Miles (now working aboard Moshulu in Philadelphia) looks for answers to a question in some slides. Brouwer's Falkland Islands Expedition report appears on pages 38-42 in this issue. In our next will appear his report on another hulk in the tide of time, an 18th century ship uncovered in the cellar of the building next door to where he works, as historian at South Street Seaport Museum. We are also coming back for a further look at New York in our next. Opposite the opening of the East River story on page 9 appears an ad that carries the message we get from the river we work by . Not by sheer accident, in that ad Mr. DiMaggio is standing before the river, on the NMHS pier. The ships of South Street can be seen behind him . Inspired by this kind of thing, we offer our plan for the river on page 16-a scheme knit up of heady dreaming and hard work by citizens on both banks of the river whose traffics built the New World's greatest city. PS

COVER: "Towing Out-End of Sail in the East River," by John A. Noble, who this year celebrates his fiftieth anniversary as artist of New York harbor, shows a schooner on her final departure in 1939. "You poor vessel passing under the bridge with your tattered foreign crew are the end of American sail, " notes the artist. From the collection of Herbert Tucker of Bayonne, New Jersey.
