Ambrose Lightship back at South Street Seaport

In the good old days lightships marked the shoals from Nantucket to Delaware Bay.  (Well maybe not so good if your were on duty in a short steep chop).  One of them was the Ambrose Lightship which marked the entrance to the Ambrose channel into New York harbor.  The Ambrose has gotten a new coat of paint and is now back on station at South Street Seaport to fascinate tourists and schoolchildren. h/t Save Our Seaport
