Rosenfeld Exhibit at City Island Nautical Museum

The City Island Nautical Museum in City Island, NY is currently hosting a photographic exhibition called “Morris Rosenfeld Photos of City Island Boats.” The Rosenfeld Collection is the largest single collection of maritime photography in the world, and although it is housed at Mystic Seaport, the photographers who created it, Morris Rosenfeld and his sons David, Stanley and William, lived and worked on City Island.

The Rosenfelds produced nearly a million photographs. Their images of sailboats, steam yachts, naval vessels, powerboat races, leisure activities, and every America’s Cup Race from 1885 to 1992 are world famous. This newly curated exhibition features images of legendary boats built at the island’s yacht yards, including Dorade, Brilliant, Bolero, Constellation, Infanta, and Analgra. Curator Tom Nye has also created a unique slide show featuring Rosenfeld images and photographs from the museum’s collection.

The exhibition will remain on view until  December 21. The City Island Nautical Museum is located at 190 Fordham Street, City Island, NY. Hours are Saturday and Sunday 1:00 to 5:00 pm and by special appointment. For more information, visit cityislandmuseum.org.
