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.

Thanks to the Long Island City Community Boathouse for these pics long on spirit if perhaps a bit short on focus.  My last trip with LIC Community Boathouse goes back five years already!!  On that Sobro cleanup trip I also took these fotos.

Ship of Tolerance, which will be at the salt dock on Staten Island this weekend.   In the foto below, Gabby L. Miller is moving the Ship past the United Nations Building.
