Other Peoples Photos 75

This post was inadvertently launched last week but I re-boxed it.  I received these photos more than a year ago from Jonathan Steinman, who has shared many other photos here.  Can you guess where these photos were taken?   There’s a significant clue in clear view.   Titanic might not be an auspicious name for […]

Port of Venezia 2

Low bridge, lower air draft, refrigeration box on the cargo area, hand cart loaded with boxes . . . that’s how your food and drink must be delivered in Venice. Notice in white letters forward on the reefer box . . . “order and delivery” in Italian. Here are two more such cold delivery boats. […]

Port of Venezia 1

I’ve never been to Venice, a fact I’d love to remedy soon;  maybe I have to visit it soon.  The third photo in this recent post about lighthouses had a mystery location.  Congratulations to Tommy Bryceland, who guessed it was Venice. Since large ships do call in Venice, there must be rimorchiatori aka tugboats, like […]

Neptune and Hudson

Coming out of Newark Bay, Hudson, the newest Vane 4200. And a bit later, exiting the Arthur Kill past Shooters Island, it’s Neptune, the former Chevron Snohomish.   I’ve not seen Neptune here much, and here, thanks to Jonathan Steinman, here’s the first I see of Hudson pushing a barge likely toward the mid North […]

Random Tugs 187

Thanks to Jonathan Steinman, who once a week has a moment to look out his window at work, here’s an angle on Kimberly Poling showing a weight bench just behind the wheelhouse.   In pleasant weather, that must make a great gym. Chandra B meets Morton Bouchard Jr with the Goethals Bridge–old and new–as backdrop. […]

Other People’s Photos 58

Here’s a short but motley set of photos.  Can you identify the tug below sporting the Canadian flag?  Answer follows. Below it’s Barry Silverton, pushing Fight ALS eastbound on the East River.   Big Allis identifies the location, where Don Jon folks/equipment have recently placed the platforms to the lower right side of the photo. […]

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 […]

Essex-built Schooner and the Huge Gray Haze

With a tip of the hat  to Hildegarde Swift and Lynd Ward, the title that came to mind as I shot these, and you’ll see why by the end.  See the road signs up there intended for drivers on the Triboro Bridge? Rewarding my wait, it’s Jaguar towing Highlander Sea into the Gate, past 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 […]
