Here was the first in this series, from quite a while back. The next two photos below were taken late last week by Brian DeForest.
Miss New York, Blount built in 1993 leaves the Statue quite dramatically.
Ferry Lt. Samuel S. Coursen, Mathis built 1956, was named for this West Point grad.
That’s Explorer of the Seas in the background.
Water Taxi and NYC Audubon operate this winter cruise to watch the water mammal between the boat and my lens.
Seals in the harbor are the real people movers.
And finally, let’s move from those mammals to one painted on the ferry Major General William H. Hart, Staten-Island built 1926 . . . now rebranded as SS Meow Man.
On pages 450-1 of Peter& Norma Stanford’s A Dream of Tall Ships–which I reviewed here– there’s a description of this vessel’s hand-over from the USCG to South Street Seaport, where for a period of time it served as a marine trades training school, partly funded by Brooke Astor. Here was a post where I used a slightly different version of this Hart photos.
Thanks to Brian for use of the first two photos. All others by Will Van Dorp.
