GLORY's (Behind the Scenes) "Metropolitan downtown Greenport " Tour

View Greenport From the Sea, From the Old Shipyards to the Nature Habitats

Sterling Harbor, named after the Lord of the same name who once owned most of Long Island and Nova Scotia, is slightly to the west and north of Preston’s Dock. If there is a sea kicking up, or if the wind is blowing just a tad too stiffly, or if there are passengers aboard who prefer the calm tranquility of an inner harbor, then Sterling Harbor is a great destination. To get there we pass the old Brigham’s shipyard where more than 2000 men and woman worked 3 split 8 hour shifts during WW11 building minesweepers and patrol boats for the US Navy. The shipyard has the last remaining 200-ton marine railway left on Long Island that is still in operation. Past the shipyard we enter into the still waters of what I refer to as “downtown metropolitan Greenport.” This destination is away from the hustle and bustle of the commercial district and is quite charming and very quiet. The harbor is well protected and a great destination for those challenged by their fear of the water. Sterling Harbor is the home of the village anchorage, and the osprey nest and natural beauty of Sandy Beach. An easy and charming destination.

Did You Know?

The picture you see above is a sculpture executed by Arden Scott, a well known artist who makes her home in Greenport. It is built of white granite from a quarry located in Bethel, Vermont. The two obelisks are so placed that the North star can be seen above and between them. The monument is on Sandy Beach at the entrance to Sterling Harbor and it honors the lost fishermen and watermen of the village.
