I’ve always found that parts of New York remind me of New England.  Which parts you might wonder?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERATry . . . the North Fork  . . . Greenport, NY, where many vessels were built during most of the first half of the 20th century.  I don’t know the story of this very lobsterboat type vessel . . .  other than that it could convince me to check if the Department of Health is hiring.  Check these boats from Cape Ann, Ma and parts downeast.

This blue skiff, appearing to float on a wave of nets and floats, reminds me of vessels built along coastal NJ.  Check here for a 30′ Baykeeper vessel, built in Keyport, NJ.
