The end of the long weekend and the first unofficial (non-astronomical) day of autumn brought soaking rains to the region. Morning found Dann Marine’s unusually designed pusher tug the Chesapeake Coast anchored in the River off 72nd Street with a tanker barge. This tug is seen on the River sometimes, but usually running light with no barge, and rarely, if ever, at anchor.
The DEP’s Red Hook was back in action servicing the North River plant after several days in which the newer Hunts Point was doing the honors. Meanwhile, Hunts Point was off in Jamaica Bay Tuesday, ferrying sludge from the Rockaway plant to the 26th Ward plant for dewatering.
