Ross Sea pushes a deep-loaded barge. In the distance, a small portion of the Brooklyn Army Terminal.
Farther upriver Patty Nolan finds herself alone at the dock surrounded by a thin layer of ice that
in the brackish water over in Newark Bay would not form. That’s Port Elizabeth to the northeast.
Last shot: a nameless pusher tug on the high and dry at an undisclosed location north of the Tappan Zee aka (but rarely) Malcolm Wilson Bridge.
All fotos by Will Van Dorp, except of course the one by Vladimir.
