Temperatures dropped sharply Tuesday evening and by Wednesday morning we were back to the 60s with skies increasingly cloudy as we headed into storms coming Wednesday night.
The Jennifer Turecamo pulled up her hook Wednesday morning, dropped into the notch on her tanker barge Tennessee, and left the North River after an unusually long stay here of around 10 days. Jennifer moved down to the old Stapleton navy dock on Staten Island and then moved around to Moran Towing’s base on the North Shore. She may have left the barge behind in Stapleton and this could offer a hint at why she remained in the river for so long: the Stapleton dock was home to several navy and Coast Guard ships visiting for Fleet Week and perhaps the barge needed to be elsewhere.
In any case, the Dean Reinauer, which had been anchored north of the bridge for a shorter period, also weighed anchor, leaving only the Saint Emilion anchored off Grant’s Tomb remaining.
