Some of you know the dimensions of these two vessels, so for you all who don’t, I’m not saying for now.

Some of the CMA CGM ships are named for French writers; Nerval is an interesting one because of a story–fake or not–about him and his pet lobster.  You mean it’s odd to have a lobster as a pet?

The tug--T. J. Brown–dates from 1962 and is 60′ x 18.8′  CMA CGM Nerval is relatively small as container ships go these days:  984′ x 131.’

And Gérard de Nerval and his lobster, here’s the story;  he rescued it from the pot. The sixth boro and all its bulkheads have a billion oyster project,  meow man’s beautifications, and maybe it’s time for a NYNJ Nerval to enhance the harbor and its promenades with lobsterloverlanes.  By the way,  I’ve seen animals walking through Penn Station and local transit hubs, but so far, no lobsters.
