The USCGC Lilac was a Coast Guard lighthouse tender currently located in New York City. It was built in 1933 at the Pusey & Jones Shipyard in Wilmington, Delaware.[2] In the 1950s she assisted several ships that collided. Decommissioned in 1972, she was donated to the Harry Lundeburg Seamanship School of Seafarers International Union.[2] She was added to the National Register of Historic Places on January 7, 2005.[1] She is a museum ship, docked at Pier 25, near North Moore Street in Manhattan.
