Hoops 2

But first, what can you tell me about the tree directly below? Now to “hoops” and maybe I should say “Höegh hoops . . .” Here’s the aft most one, and the court extends forward from there to this one. See it?  I wished I’d been on the Bayonne Bridge walkway to look down on […]

Hoops

aka Naismith gear.  And where is this industrial setting? At, in, or  on  Stolt Invention.  And what is Stolt Invention, you might wonder? She’s a parcel tanker and midday today she left the sixth boro bound for sea, bound for some scrimmage somewhere in mid-ocean somewhere.  Yes, that’s Siberian Sea (1980, ex-Heidi E. Roehrig, Matthew, […]

Random Sixth Boro 10

The sixth boro, i.e., the watery part that holds the other boros together, is the one that never sleeps, with current, tides, mechanical denizens and their operators, their flora and fauna,  . . .  I’ll leave the list there for now. You can read the season changing in the fact that Eastern Welder has reappeared […]

Balls on Hulls

Thanks to Ashley Hutto, I started on this path a month ago.  Notice the equipment just beyond the H-bitt and slightly toward the capstan? The same equipment can be found on this $161 million stationary vessel on the East River:  the orange ring and net seems to be to the right and several balls can […]

Yachts a Million 2

Name this vessel?  Right there is the name.  Answer at end of the post. I’d love to see the interior, as it might be as stark as the lines. This is severe, almost military, but I like it. This to is excess with an excessive name . . . Vibrant Curiosity, which happens to be […]

Mermaid Parade 2017 b

Yesterday’s post was the lead-up.  The parade never starts until the man with the Coney drum steps out. This year mermaid queen was Debbie Harry. After that, it was lots of dancing and music. . . .  click here to listen to Fogo Azul’s Brazilian sound.  See more Fogo AzulNYC here. I love the beer can […]

What I Saw but Missed

This is a new title, although I’ve had part of the experience before.  Frequently, I take photos but don’t notice the most interesting detail of the shot until I download the files to the computer, the bigger screen.  Here and here are some examples. This post, though, features others’ shots because I didn’t snap what I saw.  I […]

Back in the Sixth Boro 3

Here was 1 . . . from about a year ago.   But what’s this . . . hoops at a food emporium? Basketball with new floor markings and maybe new rules?  By the way, assisting along the starboard side of the RORO is Gramma Lee T Moran, the same tugboat featured in Back in […]

Pairs in Springtime 4

No . . . I’m not misspelling the name of that French city that enthralls all those singers like . . .  PaperMoon.  I mean sixth boro  “p-a-i-r-s,” which that French city just re-enacts, right?  Pairs here like Siberian Sea and Stolt Invention, this latter featured in yesterday’s Hoops post;  or small fishing boat and […]

Road Fotos 3

Rumor circulated that fireworks would scintillate over Yorktown on the opposite side of the Cooper, so we made our way to the river behind where revelers in evening dress emerged from stretch-Hummers, over by the container port where Fairload was the only vessel in port. We waited on the pier accompanied, we thought, only by […]
