The NPR station I support–WNYC–has been running an interesting BBC series called “History of the World in 100 Objects.”  This has itself spawned a local variation called “the story of NY in 10 objects.”  So far, WNYC has revealed 10, 9, and 8;  more next week.

I’m curious whether the seven remaining will include water-related, sixth boro-linked items.  Certainly, any ship that passes through the Narrows is emblematic of the story of this city.  Any the vessels never stop!  John Watson took these two this morning.  CSAV Suape heads out, and

CMA CGM L’etoile arrives, for a short appointment for some container shuffling in the port of NYC/NJ.   Suape‘s namesake is a Brazilian port, and the vessel, whose original name was MedBaffin, first floated three years ago off the Chinese island of Zhoushan.  L’etoile . . .  star, comes from Hyundai Heavy Industries in Ulsan.    Vessels come and go, all weather and hours of night and day . . . a gauge of tireless trade.

Is it Noy Noy or

NouNou, or are they the same?

Can you guess the origin of that flag?

St. John’s is the clue.  Passing here is OOCL Norfolk.

Mare Transporter on 1/28 (a month ago) and then

on 1/31.  Today she’s in Alexandria aka الإسكندرية‎, as in Egypt’s largest port.

NYK Meteor as focused on a chock, and then

steel braces, and then

spare chassis,

On February 1st she departed the east end of the KVK, and now she’s in port in Busan.

Ditto Ever Diadem . . . on Feb 7 she left the sixth boro;  since then she’s stopped at half a dozen ports, traversed the thin continent at Panama, made her way in and out of the

the Golden Gate, and is headed  . . .  where in Asia?

And what would surround us in our daily NYC lives without the goods on these vessels?

Many thanks to John Watson for the first two fotos.
