Petroleum products make up a large percentage of barge cargoes in the sixth boro, but other loads exist, like supplies/services here

pushed by Shawn Miller

bottom sculpting remnants (how’s that for a euphemism?)  moved elsewhere  as towed here by Atlantic Coast,

a four-wheeler moved by this unidentified “be-spudded vessel,”   (Anyone identify it?)

paper for recycling down at Visy aka Pratt Industries escorted by the venerable James Turecamo,

metal for recycling moved by the “recycled” tug Herbert P Brake , and

finally, the most important liquid of all . . . potable water, carefully shepherded by Nathan E. Stewart.

Got other barge cargoes?  Send them along.
