"The New Year's Eve Steam Whistle Blow at Pratt Institute, located at 200 Willoughby Avenue in Brooklyn, was nominated to the Census of Places that Matter for being a literal New Year's Eve blast! Steam whistles, salvaged from trains, riverboats, ocean liners and factories, are kept in Pratt's steam-powered plant, the oldest, privately-owned, continuously operating, power plant of its kind in the country.
