(cont. from yesterday)

Divine decks and the city . . . with Zeus.  Between Zeus and the city, that’s GMD docks at Bayonne, where both Tavrichesky Bridge and Sichem Defiance are having some attention lavished on them.  Notice between Zeus bow and the left side of the foto … just beyond the ivory colored building then to the right of Three World Financial Center … it’s Zurab Tsereteli‘s 9/11 monument.

Miriam Moran spinning the decks of Affinity while survey deck of Wolf River slips past.  Wolf River . . . now that’s a vessel whose name is begging for lyrics and a tune.

Over on the opposite side, we see Jersey City astride the afterdeck of Gramma Lee T Moran.

East Coast decks approaching a scrap tow pushed by a blue boat . . . and just off and beyond the clusterflurry of Manhattan, you can see Citibank Tower in Queens.

Of course, it’s June K, pushing two decks worth of scrap,  with fishing decks way off in the distance in front of the ferry terminal/Whitehall portion of the city and headed toward the East River.

Parting decks and the city:  the decks of NYK Daedalus and the ex-city Brooklyn, now one of the six boros, topped by the ex-Williamsburgh Savings Bank Tower.

Any time you’re ready for more decks and the city, call me.  Don’t expect any resemblance to characters with names like Henry or Harry or Carry or Chary or  …  But all these banks, time for some Pete Seeger.  Indulge me.

All fotos, Will Van Dorp.
