More and more ice is finding its way south into the upper bay, slowing traffic down. I rode the SI ferry to get some photos of the conditions. I do not remember ever seeing this much ice in the harbor, it is quite a sight. Also this week I was able to catch some really nice color near Snug Harbor.
If you get a chance go out and see the ice. It’s best when the tide is flowing out.
Hope to get out and photograph more of the ice floes in the next few days.
Until next week… John Skelson
The arctic winds and frigid temperatures did nothing to deter the hearty folks who donned their warmest coats, hats, and scarves to make it to the great doors of 60 Pine Street and live to tell the tale! It was such a night!
The beautiful wood-paneled walls, comfortable sofas, luxurious rest rooms (you have to see it to believe it!), good food and drink, and courteous, cheery servers of Manhattan’s historic Down Town Association all provided a perfect setting for The Working Harbor Committee’s 10th Annual Gala on 19 February, 2015.
The honoree, John Atkins, President of Global Container Terminal USA, arrived bright and early with a happy smile on his face. It was uphill from there!
We laughed, we ate, we raised glasses of tasty drinks, we talked, we listened to speeches, we were even given an impromptu pop history quiz by Jim Devine, Senior Advisor to GCT USA, who had the entire room calling out their answers!
It was a wonderful evening spent in the best of good company.
Many thanks to all the supporters of The Working Harbor Committee for helping to make the 10th Annual Gala Awards a huge success!
