The wind swung around to the northeast Thursday and brought in wet weather and more fog, not ideal conditions for river traffic and even less ideal for photographing river traffic. The DEP’s Red Hook sludge tanker came through early, servicing the North River sewage plant and ferrying residual solids to the Hunts Point plant for dewatering. Red Hook was trailed by about 1/2 mile by the tug boat Susquehanna, coming through with an empty oil can lashed to the hip. Susquehanna went on to anchor north of the bridge off Riverdale.
Mackenzie Rose came through with two empty and one loaded hoppers after traveling up to Coeymans overnight and headed for the Greenville anchorage off Jersey City and then a dock in Brooklyn.
