Magic Monday

Beautiful conditions prevailed to start the week, with winds settling down though still blowing steadily out of the northwest. The Carnival Magic cruise ship arrived early and then headed out by 4pm for a cruise to the Bahamas. Ben Franklin remained anchored off 72nd Street for the second day in a row. Coeymans Marine Towing tugs were busy moving bulk products and Domino sugar in Yonkers received a delivery.
