Lots of Magic heading into a wet weekend.

Temperatures barely got into the 60s Friday as New York heads into a soaked weekend thanks to the remnants of Hurricane Ian. With the storm moving ashore in South Carolina now, Norwegian Getaway made a late Thursday departure without passengers for its winter base in Cape Canaveral. Getaway was replaced by Carnival Magic and Disney Magic. The Disney boat was returning from cruising in Norway and the UK, and will run a series of cruises out of New York to Bermuda now in October, beginning later Friday. The Carnival Magic was completing its last cruise of the season out of New York and left early in the day, probably deadheading down to Norfolk where it will be based for October. Meanwhile, barge traffic seemed light, and Kristin Poling remained anchored off 96th Street.
