OK . . . I fail here.  Which Moran and which McAllister are those in the Sunday morning chop?

I’ve headed into a different part of the sixth boro each of the past three days . . . today was the North River . . .  passenger terminal, since

three cruise ships came in around 0700 hrs . . . Gem and Brilliance, shown here, as well as Caribbean Princess, still outside the Narrows when this screenshot was taken. John J Marchi is a ferry, and I’ve not gotten confirmation it carried passengers.  Anyone ride a Staten Island ferry today?  And as of 1830 hrs, all have again departed.  Notice the icon for Glory Express in the screen grab below?  I believe this is the 2-million-barrel tanker referenced in this article. It’s been outside the Lower Bay for a few days now.

Cruise ship passengers debarking and others boarding in midTown . . . along with closed midTown streets closed because of this bent crane AND

disrupted LIRR and subways . . . made for lots of surly folks, if not a zombie apocalypse then at least an invasion of the cheeriness snatchers.  For outatowners, on a normal day, eachtown listed on this Long Island Railroad schedule board would have several departure times listed.

Jersey City and Hoboken, coastal NJ cities across the river from midTown, have experienced their share of disruption.  Here Catherine Miller delivers a crane barge northbound as a helicopter (National Guard?) flies to the south.

Vicki M moves another barge near the Hoboken ferry terminal, then

as Lynx moves a load of generators, loaders,  and other equipment (not sure what some of  it is),

Vicki M plays mobile thruster there before

moving southward to play same role with Jay Michael.

Overhead . . . might Janet Napolitano be in that chopper?

Many thanks to Tom Rinaldi for sending along this link of ferry Binghamton post-Sandy.  Thanks, Tom.  Check out Tom’s site here.

Unrelated:  Kirby’s Siberian Sea in Halifax here.

Ten weeks ago I did this post about Kraken–the best named vessel in the sixth boro.  That day, I sat on the west shore of Bayonne looking at Elizabeth.  But yesterday . . . with many thanks to Frank Belesimo, VP  of  Cashman Dredging, I got onto the water for a close-up tour of the Kraken and masterful description of how it works.   Here we approach the boat with our backs to Bayonne.  That’s St. Patrick’s Church to the right.  The red tug is Jay Michael (1980).

The orange /red tint to the water speaks of the red clay soil of the area as well as

the cords that conduct the blast signal into the charges placed below.

Three bore-platforms operate along a rail, drilling into the bottom and placing the charges.

In the background on the Elizabethport shore is the huge now-defunct Singer plant.

This is intense work.

Moving inside the house, notice Elizabeth Marine Terminal/Port Newark in the background, along with the peninsula of Bayonne and the cliffs of Manhattan beyond.   And on the line stretched betwen bore-platforms, those nodes at the end of each orange signal cord will

ultimately be clipped together so that when the time comes, a coordinated blast will occur down below, cracking up the

whatever hard bottom material needs to be taken away to reach the contracted depth.

More on this dredging project later.  All fotos by Will Van Dorp; getting the tour the same day the Shuttle flew over . . . I positive NASA wanted a close-up view of the project as well.
