Welcome to the New Jersey History and Historic Preservation Conference

Gerald Weinstein

Gerald Weinstein has been documenting and restoring historic industry and engineering sites for over 40 years. Working mainly with industrial archeologists, he has photographed and written histories on scores of sites for HABS/HAER mitigation submissions in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Massachusetts. He has documented historic abandoned vessels in NY/NJ reaches for the US Army Corps of Engineers, completed photography and reports for several National Register nominations, and is currently involved with EPA Superfund projects.  His firm, Archive of Industry, supplies high-quality images focused on industrial heritage for use in presentations and reports. In 2003, Gerry led a project to save the 1933 steam-powered Lighthouse Tender Lilac, which is now a museum ship moored at Hudson River Park.  A longtime member of the Society of Industrial Archeology (SIA) and its Roebling Chapter, his family business has sponsored the SIA General Tools Award for excellence in the field of industrial archeology for 30 years. Gerry’s hobbies include restoring steam engines from NY/NJ vessels and power plants and building a large model railroad layout of the New York Central 1952 Hudson Division
