East River Float-by by JM

JM, that’s John McCluskey, sent along these photos yesterday.  I’d planned on doing that same trip yesterday, but time got away from me and today it’s rainy and darker! This shot greatly resembles one of the first set of photos I ever posted on a blog, my very first post. You can see it here. […]

East River Traffic 2

Here was the first in this series.  Let’s go to a different location on the East River, and I know I’m late coming to this story, but it’s an exciting one.  Hunts Point is now receiving regular cement shipments, by ship via the East River.  Shipments originate at Port Daniel Gascons, QC. Here under the […]

East River Traffic

I’ve done other East River series, but it’s time to start a new one.  The next 12 photos were taken yesterday over a total elapsed 11 minutes!  I happened to be near South Street Seaport in hopes of catching santacon craziness there, as I did many years ago here. Let’s start with Alice discharging aggregates, […]

East River Sight to Behold 3

The first six photo here comes from Jonathan Steinman, taken on June 13.  The Donjon tugs has delivered Chesapeake 1000 to a point just off Rockefeller University’s campus to prepare for lifting prefabricated modules for Rockefeller’s River Campus. Step one for Donjon is to secure the gargantuan crane. Then Atlantic Salvor moves into place to receive the […]

East River Sight to Behold 2

The sixth boro tidal strait typical known as the East River, surrounded as it is by impressive urbanity, is nonetheless a significant waterway.  These photos today come from Jonathan Steinman, as did these of Ginga Lion, a 507′ loa vessel. But Jonathan was surprised–as was I when I got his photos– to see ATB Freeport travel through […]

East River Delights 5

Here are previous posts in this series. These photos come thanks to Jonathan Steinman, who keeps vigil on the East River.  Here, he reports from a week ago, “construction of Rockefeller University’s River Campus continues apace … see Susan Miller guiding a barge and crane into position.” While the day passes, Paul Andrew (?) comes by […]

East River Mystery 5

Here are the previous installments. Rare as it is to see a chemical tanker traverse the East River, there’s no mystery about this vessel’s identity…  Ginga Lion.  For outatowners, the bridge goes by Koch Bridge, 59th Street Bridge, or Queensboro Bridge. These photos were taken last Wednesday–October 21–by Jonathan Steinman, frequent contributor of photos from along […]

East River Mystery 4

Here are previous posts in this series. And this set comes from Mike Abegg, whose photos have been used here previously.   Check this out.  All I know about the yellow vessel is that it looks like a Griffon 1000TD. Anyone know the whences and whose . . . inquiring minds wish to know. Thanks to […]

East River Sight to Behold

Many thanks to Jonathan Steinman for these remarkable photos.  McAllister Girls and Ellen (or Robert?) tow Empire State to the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Indeed, it is a sight to behold a tow like this on the East River!

East River Delights 4

Here were 1,  2, and 3.  Looking back, my favorite of those three is number 1.  So what are the delights of the East River, other than my longstanding fixation on this aggregate carrier . . . ? Well, clearly I’m not the only one who recognizes how delightful Alice’s presence in the sixth boro […]
