The Conference

  • Philip J. Davis


Three hundred years ago, King Christian V, expanding the harbor of Copenhagen, built a cul-de-sac canal extending into the city perpendicularly from the existing waterfront. The canal is about four city blocks long and four or five fishing boats wide. It is spanned by one small drawbridge. Lined up in the Nyhavn (New Harbor) canal—it has been called that since Christian’s day—are small fishing boats, excursion boats, a theater boat, a restaurant and cabaret boat, and Fyrskib Nr. XVII (Lightship No. 17), now retired from active sea duty and moored permanently as a kind of museum.
