New Bedford

New Bedford
Нью-Бедфорд, город в штате Массачусетс, рыболовный порт, в прошлом центр китобойного промысла., описан в романе Германа Мелвилла «Моби Дик» ("Moby Dick").
One of the leading cities of Massachusetts (population: over 100,000) it is situated in southeastern part of the state on the estuary of the Acushnet River on Buzzards Bay. A county seat of Bristol County. Now an important fishing center, it was long the chief American whaling center, succeeding Nantucket: this industry was at its height in 1854, but has since greatly declined. Among its places of interest is the "Seamen's Bethel", a chapel frequented by the crews of the 19th century whaling vessels. It has plaques on the walls commemorating men lost at sea and a pulpit shaped like a whaling boat's prow-all exactly as described in Herman Melville's "Moby Dick". The Old Dartmouth Historical Society and Whaling Museum has a large and unique collection of whaling implements, scrimshaw and log-books as well as furniture, costumes, firearms, etc
