It’s our blog’s 4th Anniversary today! (Thanks wordpress for reminding me!)

4 years ago, when I launched workingharbor.wordpress.com, I had no idea if anyone would read it. 285, 806 visitors later – I think it’s safe to say that you do!

What I’ve learned in these 4 years of (almost) daily postings of “all-news-maritime” is that there’s been no shortage of stories of the working harbor to share.

The working harbor touches every one of us – tugboats, containerships, tankers and Ro-Ros transport our energy, our goods, our food, and even our garbage.

Our waters are made secure by vessels from all the uniformed services – NYPD, FDNY, Coast Guard, Port Authority PD, NY State PD, to name a few.

There are sightseeing boats and commuter ferries, barges, cranes and tiny work boats. There are sailboats, naval ships, zodiacs, kayaks, and more. There’s never a dull moment on the working harbor!

The WHC strives to educate the public on the vitality and importance of our magnificent working harbor, historically, now and into the future. I’m proud to say that in the past 4 years, the Working Harbor blog has grown to become a solid addition to the mission.
