Tugboats move quite the variety of materials around the boro on barges.  The brand spanking new J. Arnold Witte here moves Delaware Bay, a bucket dredge. 

Doris Moran moves containers around the boro much quicker than trucks can.

I had to throw this in  . . . a late 1950s Chevy pickup was moving a motorcycle southbound on the BQE. 

Sea Fox transported a scow with its own clamshell (I think) in the upper bay.

Helen Laraway had some rich light on her as

she came west in the East River, passing Lower Manhattan, with

some cubed metal.

The seldom seen Liberty II was bringing maintenance equipment to the Statue island, when I noticed an interesting detail.  See the blue Thrustmaster engine covers?

A closer up of that part of Liberty II shows she’s twin engine and her starboard engine is not in use. 

 

Closing it out, Durham is moving a mini scow into the Kills.
