The former Lehigh Valley Railroad Barge #79 (built 1914) was purchased for a dollar by its current owner, a juggler, who rescued it from its partially submerged state under the George Washington Bridge. Now it serves as a floating museum with exhibits and events. The museum is free, but if you leave a donation you get a temporary tattoo. It's not a huge attraction, but sufficiently odd to be interesting.
