Ever Take the Schamonchi to the Vineyard? Where Is It Now?
The New York Post is reporting that a group of artists who have been living on the Schamonchi while it was docked in Brooklyn, have been ordered to leave by the NYPD. The police cited them for living on an abandoned vessell.
The squatters had set up electricity and some sort of plumbing and occasionally held late night parties.
The ship was built in 1978 and named the Schamonchi while it ran passenger ferry service from New Bedford to Martha's Vineyard. The Steamship Authority sold the ship for $100,000 in 2005.
