Tug Emily Ann and the crane barge Delaware Bay are already at the crash site, standing watch until Thursday’s somber operation.

Once Tug Specialist is raised from the bottom of the Hudson, the first priority is to recover the body of crew member Harry Hernandez.

Last week we experienced a wonderful WHC tour of the KVK and Newark Bay on a NY Waterway. The weather Gods cooperated with great weather and “Kodachrome” light for photography.

Here’s highlights of the trip.
