I grew up along the coast of Long Island Sound and spent a few weeks every summer on Nantucket. As a result I’ve always had a fascination with coastal societies. I just love seeing how the natural environment shapes the way people live. Today it may be hard to imagine how a city as large and modern as New York, NY has been influenced by its natural surroundings, but the South Street Seaport Museum shows the history of New York City’s relationship with the sea. The museum “is dedicated to preserving and interpreting the history of New York as a port city.” They do this with “16 historic and contemporary installations interweaving the city, the sea, and the Seaport neighborhood.”

The South Street Seaport Museum doesn’t say a whole lot, but you can take a look at their Exhibitions, Adult Programs, and Kids Programs to get a sense of what they offer. In addition to housing “a major collection of maritime art and artifacts and comprehensive archival materials related to the Port of New York,” the museum also “owns and operates the largest fleet of privately maintained historic ships in the U.S., by tonnage.” It looks like a really amazing place to visit, and I recommend doing that if you really want to learn about what they do. After you make a visit (or before if you insist), you can take a look at South Street Seaport Museum’s Internship page. All they do is link to an e-mail address for applying, but this Idealist posting from March shows postings for a Curatorial Intern and a Public Programs Intern.
