Today the tug Brooklyn passed by, nothing unusual about that except that it is another Brooklyn operating in the Harbor.
A parade of Container ships came into the port today, at least 11, I missed all but one of them, but with the holiday season fast approaching there will be many more coming in.
Stay dry and safe this weekend folks. Until next week… John Skelson
The highlight of this week in NY Harbor was the arrival of the French Missile Tracking Ship “Monge” (actually arrived in a rain storm last week).
No one seems to know for sure why she is here, though speculation is that she is here for the Papal and/or UN events taking place in the city next week. (Any intel on that would be appreciated.)
Her location at the Homeport Pier on Staten Island is not good for a photo, but I will take what I can get.
Otherwise, things are quiet around the port, tugs containerships, and barges.
That’s all for now. Keep on spotting…
