First an invitation directed at mariners in the sixth boro from Media Relations of the Port Authority of NY/NJ:    “… a public driven space focused on the rise of 1 WTC. As it becomes more and more a part of the NYC skyline, the site invites people to submit their pictures of 1 WTC wherever they can see it around the city. Were looking for it to be a real organic situation slowly becoming a piece of NYC culture...”  Upload your foto to the following URL:   http://1wtcview.tumblr.com/       Most of the fotos already there are taken from land;  but from water the new pinnacle on the skyline will be even more evident.  It takes a few days for the foto to appear at their site.

A short post today with this lead foto taken by David Hindin almost two years ago.  David’s vantage point is Yerba Buena Island in San Francisco Bay.    The sixth boro last saw a Zhen Hua vessel here about three years ago, so far as I know.  Left Coast Lifter arrived aboard Zhen Hua 22 to lift portions of the new suspension span of the BayBridge.   Click here for more fotos and video from two years ago.  Click here for fotos of bridge construction from a year ago.   And finally, again thanks to David, here’s a video on building a bridge to build a bridge . . . yes . .  that’s right.

Rounding out the post . . . fotos by tugster . . . a few vessels in the sixth boro on March First, ones with great names like Carpe Diem II and

Kongo Star.

David Hindin . . . thanks much for offering this virtual gallivant with the San Francisco pics.  Please keep the updates coming.  Here are pics from July and December 2010.
