Photo thanks to John Skelson . . . it’s not a bird . . . it’s not a plane . . . it’s NY Media Boat, one of the recent recipients of the Life Saving Award from the Marine Society of New York for a February 2014 rescue from a sinking tugboat.
So . . . what might you see on a customized adventure sightseeing tour of the sixth boro aboard NY Media Boat? Well . . . if you’re interested in fireboats or firehouses . . . they’re near their Pier 25 pick up site.
You never know what private boats might be docked at the passenger terminal . . . this one obviously wanting proximity to
the car wash. Thanks to Phil Little for this unique perspective from the cliff at Weehawken.
If Alice is in town, you can meet her up and personal. Alice Oldendorff, aggregate carrier, was the focus of the very first tugster post over seven years ago, as well as many since. Use the search window.
The East River offers unusual juxtapositions . .. like the UN and the WTC.

1976 tramway. But if you’re like me, you’ll be hoping for
unexpected sailing vessels like Halie & Matthew or all manner of work boats like
Long Island built Maryland.
How about the “interior” side of Red Hook Container Terminal?
Of course, then there’s nothing that beats close-ups of wherever you want on the sixth boro by open boat. Book a tour here. By the way, the boat offers warm, waterproof gear and PFDs.
