<<This just in! Tugster faces an immediate election!! See note at end of this post.>>>
Au contraire . . . it’s Giulio Verne, having appeared on this blog once long ago here.
So why is she in the sixth boro, you ask? To help install a backup and down under power system. Read prysmian’s press release here. Here are mostly land fotos of the project that carries the river’s name.
Click here for the specs and diagrams of the vessel.
thanks to Kaya, who surfed QE2‘s wake here some years back, enjoy this foto of her at work last week. On the extreme right side of the foto is Port Imperial, named for Mr. Imperatore, NYWaterways floating homeport.
Unrelated: When something unidentifiable causes a traffic snarl on the Queensboro Bridge, it might just be Batman and a movie shoot.
Tugster has been nominated for VillageVoice “best neighborhood (of course the sixth boro IS a NYC neighborhood and an ignored one at that!!) blog” AND for “best photo (even though that’s not how it’s really spelled) blog.” It WOULD really be an honor to win this . . . so please vote vote and vote some more. Ask your siblings and everyone to vote, please.
