Here was 1 . . . from about a year ago. But what’s this . . . hoops at a food emporium?
Basketball with new floor markings and maybe new rules? By the way, assisting along the starboard side of the RORO is Gramma Lee T Moran, the same tugboat featured in Back in the Sixth Boro 1.
And although I lack clear photographic evidence, I did see
two dolphins swimming off Bergen Point, off the starboard side of Asian King.
Happy to be back . . . all fotos by Will Van Dorp, this morning.
I’m no idea why they’re in the North River. Maybe they heard this vessel (fourth foto) had been in the sixth boro?
L’amica . . . grazie.
First an invitation directed at mariners in the sixth boro from Media Relations of the Port Authority of NY/NJ: ”… a public driven space focused on the rise of 1 WTC. As it becomes more and more a part of the NYC skyline, the site invites people to submit their pictures of 1 WTC wherever they can see it around the city. We’re looking for it to be a real organic situation – slowly becoming a piece of NYC culture...” Upload your foto to the following URL: http://1wtcview.tumblr.com/ Most of the fotos already there are taken from land; but from water the new pinnacle on the skyline will be even more evident. It takes a few days for the foto to appear at their site.

The sixth boro last saw a Zhen Hua vessel here about three years ago, so far as I know. Left Coast Lifter arrived aboard Zhen Hua 22 to lift portions of the new suspension span of the BayBridge. Click here for more fotos and video from two years ago. Click here for fotos of bridge construction from a year ago. And finally, again thanks to David, here’s a video on building a bridge to build a bridge . . . yes . . that’s right.
Rounding out the post . . . fotos by tugster . . . a few vessels in the sixth boro on March First, ones with great names like Carpe Diem II and
