Hi Everyone, I’m going to be headed out-of-town for a bit – so while I’m on-the-road, I’ll be posting a little less news and a little more views…

Here’s a sweet series of shots from my pal Mitch Waxman taken on one of our many treks to the polluted channel. As luck would have it, while we were at the water’s edge at the Newtown Creek Nature Walk, along comes Crystal Cutler pushing Patricia E. Poling, cruising down the waterway headed towards Manhattan.

The Newtown Creek Nature Walk is one of the few points on Newtown Creek the public can actually get to the water, so needless to say we had a pretty great close-up view of tug & barge as they navigated towards the Pulsaski Bridge and beyond.
