Paris this springtime has seen new waterfronts, quite miserable for anyone wedded to the old margins. Click on the image to read the story.
But I’m not focusing here on “paris,” but rather “pairs” that have been “pairing” around the sixth boro. And that appears to be Flinterland over beyond the warehouses just arrived from Paramaribo. Both Paris and Paramaribo are on my list of “gotta got there soon” places. In the foreground and eastbound on the East River, it’s Foxy 3 and Rae.
I caught Marie J Turecamo and Mary Turecamo doing the do-see-doe allemand left recently just off Caddell.
The background margins seemed to be trying to add a script.
With the Turecamos, the background served as a record of change on the Bayonne Bridge.
And Mary appears to have just had a makeover.
Are there pairs in those boxes? Yes, I know these are the flocks of pigeons that are said to create art when they fly. Here though in daylight they look like Joseph Perkins boxes with living creatures in them, mimicking a microcosm of the residents of NYC.
But I’ve somehow gotten myself off topic, but no matter, it’s springtime.
All photos by Will Van Dorp, who took a break from catfishing and stumbled onto an answer thanks to the site naturalareasnyc.org. According to them, NYC includes over 76,000 acres of open water, i.e., the sixth boro. That number of acres converts to about 119 square miles (mi2). Manhattan, in comparison is only 23 mi2.
Here are the other land boros’ areas:
Bronx, 42 mi2
Staten Island, 58 mi2
Brooklyn, 71 mi2
Queens, 109 mi2
And size matters. It’s time for the 119-acre-boro to have its own official name and status.
OK, I’ll hand this back to the robots and reel in my catfish.
Know this superstructure? Guess the date?
Know other boats on this photo? Actually I don’t although I see some Eklof colors.
Here’s Mary Turecamo as she appears today, i think. I took this photo in November 2009.
And frequent contributor Ashley Hutto send this along. Can you identify the location?
And finally, from Walter, a frequent commenter here, a novel view of Alice discharging aggregates.
These photos come thanks to bowsprite, Russell, Ashley, and Walter. Thanks very much.
Answers to the questions are: Mary Turecamo photos were taken during the 1986 centennial of the Statue of Liberty. And Ashley took the his photo over near the Goethals Bridge.
I thought I’d used this title before, but I was thinking about this one, backgrounds. The idea here is similar.
From this angle, can you identify this vessel?
It’s a shipshape Pegasus!
From the same perspective, Justine McAllister and Franklin Reinauer leaving the KVK for the AK.
Ditto equally shipshape Mary Turecamo, from a perspective such that the visor practically obscures the house windows.
What’s the tale of three wakes . . . one recent and the others less so?
This is a good view of how a model bow fits snugly in the notch.
Where’s this and what’s this? Although it looks like a building being overrun by tropical flora and fauna,
this might generate a different set of associations.
This was taken from the same vantage point but with the camera pointed a bit higher yet, and it makes all the difference.
It’s OSC Vision entering the Upper Bay last weekend, giving new meaning to the term “shipshape.” And the fauna here could be called landscaping goats . . . . or “scapegoats,” for short.
Two ships . . . well, at least until you examine the farther one more closely.
All fotos by Will Van Dorp, who did this earlier goat homage here.
Shuttles and warships and barks come and go, but the work in the boro never quits. Greets to all the crew on Falcon (1970),
Crystal Cutler (2010),
Kimberly Poling (1994),
First Coast (1968) and Grace D,
All fotos by will Van Dorp, who will be “on assignment” for a few days.
Meanwhile some ponderables:
A new radio show to create called Boat Talks . . . now that Tom and Ray are parking it . . .
