The sixth boro is a huge workplace, made up of many smaller  workplaces, each with many specialities; all

in a wide open place, without which the megalopolis could not

function.  So few

provide for the many.

So few choreograph

basic needs for

so many.

Tugs shown include from top:  Gramma Lee T Moran, Miriam Moran, Sarah Ann, and Jill Reinauer.

Can anyone identify the tug below?  Glen Cove?  Next two fotos were sent  by Richard Guthrie, taken in New Baltimore, upriver.

Closer-up by Richard shows an enormous piece of tubing headed south on the Hudson earlier this week.  Check out some of the projects on the Megrant site here.

Many thanks to Jed for the top two fotos here.  Fotos 3–7 by Will Van Dorp.

I think of the phrase “ships passing in the night.”  Random encounters also happen at dawn  (like Donald C and McAllister Brothers),


December afternoons (like Maryland and Evening Mist), or


mid morning ( like Aegean Sea and Laura K Moran), and every hour in between.  Sometimes they prompt a spin for second glance,


sometimes they lead to joined forces (like Jill and Kristy Ann Reinauer) and other times


there’s  just a perfunctory  wave as they steam by (like Thomas D. Witte and Christian Reinauer)


The challenge is to know when to steam by, when to get a second and third inquiring look, and when to form alliances.  Form ye alliances while you might . . . hmmm . . . is that like “Gather ye rosebuds while ye may . . .”?  Rest of Herrick’s poem is here.

Photos, WVD.

Jed sends along the shot below:  four sloops, Vane Chesapeake pushing a barge a few miles off, and military vessel.  Guess the vessel, event, and location?  Answer below.

Sloop plus Reinauer’s Matthew Tibbets eastbound in front of Brooklyn Heights,

ketch plus Ellen McAllister near IMTT Bayonne,

sloop plus James Turecamo near Stapleton,

sloop with unidentified Reinauer tug looking toward KVK,

unidentified Buchanan tug towing scows toward Tappan Zee along the Palisades while VOC replica appears to move a Hughes barge on the hip, taken today in Yonkers.  See more on our Half Moon blog, a work in progress, here.  

So, the vessel is the DDG67 Cole near Annapolis, coexisting with sloops in the Great Schooner Race.

On the Henry Hudson blog, we’ll be posting fortnightly, aka halfmoonthly, til spring 2009.
