Almost three years ago, I used suspension as a title, using a foto from Bill Benson of a Donjon crane lifting a Donjon tugboat . . . for maintenance. It seemed appropriate for this post, given that this vessel below, below foto taken in August 2009, wandered onto dry land six weks back and yesterday was finally
brought back into its element
by possibly the same crane.
Of course, before she would float
along this rocky Staten Island shore, divers most likely needed to apply some patches before she would float to . . . possibly the scrapyard.
At the same moment, along the southwest corner of Manhattan, another DonJon effort is underway to transfer the WTC antenna segments from the water, which has borne their conveyance down here from Canada,
onto land and from thence into the sky. These last two fotos come with many thanks–again–to l’amica dalla torre .
Fotos 2, 3, and 4 above I use with many thanks to Carter Craft and Outside New York, LLC. All fotos, not otherwise attributed, by Will Van Dorp.
