Coast Guard Sector New York’s four 29’ response boats were back in the river Thursday, drilling similarly to what we observed almost exactly a month ago (see Drill Baby Drill). Once again, two boats had their forward machine guns mounted. FDNY’s 140’ Marine 1 fire boat was also practicing on the river (or perhaps just showing off), running its water cannons for a sustained period near Pier 97.
Dredging work continues at the passenger ship terminal, bringing a steady flow of barges to haul away the mud.
