We mentioned the passage of Robert Venturi’s second built house from Jersey to the North Shore of Long Island last week, and here she is, afloat on the North Shore. Being helpless landlubbers, we missed the party on Pier 17, but Fred Schwartz was nice enough to send along these photos from the event. More after the jump.

The house was pulled by a tug past the Battery, with the Staten Island Ferry and Battery Maritime buildings visible in the background.

The house passes by two Staten Island Ferries.
