Greenland Sea passes the container port at Howland Hook,
Craig Eric Reinauer exits Erie Basin,
Christine M. McAllister approaches the Buttermilk,
Scott C glides past Carl Schurz Park,
Nanticoke pushes into the eastern end of the East River, and
I’m wondering how many of these will converge for the festivities on the North River (aka the Hudson) this Sunday.
Above is the first in this week’s series of previously unposted fotos of last Labor Day’s race.
The sixth boro hosts the 16th annual tugboat race in less than a week. Don’t think there’ll be foreign boats, but I’m confident no fake (ok, digitally enhanced) fireworks show to kick it off. I saw a blimp in the sky this weekend that really should sell camera seats . . . hint hint. Meanwhile, not knowing who will be there driving what, I’ll post a lot of tugboat fotos this week. If you’ve spectacular or unsusual shots you’re willing to share, email me. A social pair starts us ut, Colleen McAllister and Dean Reinauer, eastbound together through Hell Gate.
F. Dawson, which I called a mystery tug some months ago, works on a Harlem River project this past week.
Lee T. Moran never ceases her shift work through the Kills, it seems.
Thanks to Bernie of Working Harbor Committee, here’s a shot of Swift, just east/north of Brooklyn Bridge.
I’d never seen this Pegasus before a few weeks ago.
And last but surely not least for now, this shot of the lofty Volunteer, sent along by Jed.
See you at the Races.
