This is a port surrounded by people known far and wide, and although I don’t look for celebrities, I’ve crossed paths with the likes of Al Sharpton in Penn Station one dawn on my way to work and Lou Reed on the westside esplanade a rainy weekend day, I suspect a celebrity must be on a vessel to merit a water display like this one last weekend as Norwegian Star exited the Narrows.
Only when I got back home did I read the name S. S. Sophie and that it is or was the 1947 Trumpy owned by Greta van Susteren. I know she’s “a celebrity,” but as a non-consumer of TV news, I’ve no idea what her voice sounds like. And the S. S. ? steam? Nope.
Springer spaniel, the owner’s dog . . . if you read that link embedded in the 1947 Trumpy above. Here and here are tugster posts with yachts by Trumpy. Here’s a foto taken from the deck of Scanaro’s Manhattan.
