This morning’s NYTimes ran this art essay by Tide and Current Taxi‘s Marie Lorenz, featured here and here on tugster.  For fotos below, doubleclick to enlarge and reveal details.  MSC Voyager has traveled a long time and starred in many fotos.

The Times piece seemed to beg a response, really applause for Marie’s fine work.  A few hours along my place of meditation suggested this response.

NYC has its inaccesible places, which can be accessed if you really want.  It also has these transients, huge ones that  that steal in and out  at all hours, all days and seasons.

It has never been in New York’s best interest to be keep transients out, wherever

they might be


Neither the terrestrial City nor the sixth boro could afford to be xenophobic.

All manner of vessels traffic the bays and channels and Kills,  and people the docks.  And the crews …. through this port each spending less than a day for unloading/loading, walk citizens of untallied identities.

Again, congratulations to Marie.

All fotos taken today before noon by Will Van Dorp.
