I did this post just over a year ago; note the prominent change happening in the Manhattan skyline, as seen from the north coast of Rockaway Queens.  The last time you saw the tug shown here was December 2011.  Any guesses what Patty was towing yesterday?  Answer tomorrow.

Most of my views of the rising tower come from my “office” on the north coast of Staten Island.  It looms there, beyond these McAllisters,

Na Hoku,

Caitlin Ann,

Magothy,

Penn No. 6,

Thomas J. Brown,

Norwegian Sea,

JoAnne Reinauer III,

Hayward,

Elk River,

and Resolute.

Unrelated:  Following their own landmarks, a new crop of aeons-old silvery slime has reportedly returned to sixth boro waterways.    What . . . you ask?  Click here.

June 19 . . . from the boardwalk after the parade, and (maybe celebrating solstice inland) nary a mermaid or seamaster in sight.  An unidentified sloop plots a course between two outbound c-vessels.  See frogma’s solstice on the boardwalk pix here.

June 18 . . . a McAllister boat heads past the World Financial Center after escorting in a cruise ship.  Between the mirrored walls and sheathed in blue . . . that’s the state of construction on One World Trade.   Does the name sound a bit like a commercial version of the Bob Marley song?

June 17 . . .  crewman watches as Atlantic Coast pushes a loaded cement barge up the East River.

Earlier that day, the unit anchored in the Hudson;  barge is Cement Transporter 5300 . . . clear enough.

Crewman uses telephone on the afterdeck of Adriatic Sea.  That’s Jersey City in the background.  A year ago, Adriatic appeared here.

Left to right:  barge New HampshireScott Turecamo, Mark Miller, and Americas Spirit.  Fort Wadsworth lies in the background.

Ocean King looks to land on Pier 16 for a crew change.

I’ve never seen Ocean King (ex-David McAllister, Resolute, launched 1950) in the sixth boro before last week.

Cornell heads south past Battery Park City, hard at work in the golden hour for fotos.

All fotos by Will Van Dorp in the past 5 days.

Happy Solstice.  If you want more mermaids . . . let me know.
