If you’re around my age, you remembered this yesterday, 47 years before.

Here People … 10.  Today the spirit of carpe diem permeated the overcast sixth boro:  mild weather and 60+ degree temperature won’t last long.  Chat outside on the JFK, or

work there as this crew on Rae

and a Hughes barge weighing

anchor.

New piles were going in at the St Geirge ferry terminal,

crew way high up on Brandywine headed for the Narrows,

Resolute paraded out in unseasonal furs to meet OOCL Oakland,

Miss Gill, the loudest boat in the boro, swooped around to pick up a scow of harbor bottom to scatter at sea,

a senior crewman on Ital Oriente watched himself distancing from  last glimpses of Staten Island for a spell, and

crew on Sarah Ann tightened up the wires.

I’m guessing it all seemed easier today–no matter what else difficult was going on–the mild weather made it just a bit easier.
