The five to ten works of art displayed each summer are usually technologically innovative and interactive which delights kids and fascinates adults. For example there is usually at least one piece designed to change light or sound patterns based on the number or position of viewers.
During the day visiting the gallery space is free.
At night there are avant garde dance and music performances for which tickets are sold. Prices vary from $6 to $50 depending on the event.
The 61 bus stops in front of the gallery. The A & C trains stop two blocks away at High St.
The 2 & 4 trains stop four blocks away at Clark St.
The area around The Anchorage used to be a deserted industrial district of rusted and crumbling buildings, but in the last few years artists have been moving into the lofts and Civil War Era wearhouses. Trendy real estate agents have named the area DUMBO. And now there is a selection of restaurants and bars including a gourmet ice cream store in a former lighthouse, as well as Bargemusic, a floating concert hall, Fulton Ferry State Park, and numerous small galleries.
