The Director's Cut
It's a curiosity you won't find on any tourist maps of New York City: an accidental maritime museum, a ship graveyard where the remains of tugboats, ferries and other vessels rust in peace. This documentary offers a rare look inside a private scrapyard that has fascinated historians, artists and sightseers for decades.
