Arthur blew in on July 4th stirring up the currents and winds, creating issues for the fireworks displays, but, fortunately not much damage.

The “New” tug is not really new by any means, “Sandy G” was spotted crossing the harbor this week pushing a Crane Barge. I don’t know for sure but she may have been heading for the Tappan Zee project. Queen Mary 2 paid NY Harbor 2 visits this past week, sailing on a short 3 day cruise, and back on Sunday to load for a transatlantic crossing. Also spotted was a “new” colorful Stena Weco Tanker, anchored at Stapleton.

My photo exhibit “Tugboats, Workhorses of NY Harbor” opened this week on the Lighthouse Tender Lilac moored at Pier 25 in Manhattan. The exhibit will be up for the month of July, hours are Thursday 4-7PM and Saturday and Sunday 2-7PM.
