Activity on the River remains rather light as we start the week with clearing skies and hotter temperatures. The cruise terminal remains busy, however, with the Norwegian Getaway arriving and dredging operations continuing. The Lincoln Sea with her very large barge remains anchored off 72nd Street going on one week now, implying some special extended stay dispensation from the Coast Guard. Yachts also continue to occupy a number of anchorages. Meanwhile, on land, Manhattan welcomes back more and more office workers just as the UN kicks off its annual meetings, ensuring unpleasant driving conditions. The Coast Guard Cutter Beluga came up the River from its Sandy Hook base and tied up at a mooring south of the Bridge, perhaps a security detail laid on for the UN meetings.
