MacKenzie-Childs Part 3


This is where Victoria and Richard now live...


A 1907 Ferry Boat that Victoria & Richard MacKenzie-Childs have "cleaned & scrubbed & swabbed her decks, repaired & refined her recrudescence with the hopes of bourgeoning her resilience with a return voyages to Ellis Island’s rich museum of American Immigration, and a glimpse at a scrapbook of her own story. Sweet Yankee is a lady awaiting once more at the gates of a new century, poised to celebrate another rank of freedom. "

 















One more thing...this place is open for visitors!

1907 FERRYBOAT, YANKEE SHIP'S MATES LAWS:
Aye mates, best obey . . . lest we string ye up the yardarm!
(1) The Golden Rule:
Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: Matthew 7:12

(2) Yankee is a dry boat, as is her pier:
No alcoholic beverages permitted, which includes wine, beer & champagne.

(3) NO SMOKING nor DRUGS aboard Yankee and on Yankee's pier (within all quarters, as well as on promenades, cargo deck, and top side of vessel)
(4) Speak Gently: no vulgar speak, if ye please A-r-r-r-r-r!
(5) All Youngsters and animals must be kept in tow at all times on board, and on pier.
(6) Cast iron door stops must be employed if doors are left open, else, in the muddle of the might, they shall slam in our sleep: shut & open . . . open & shut . . . shut & open . . . open & shut . . .
