New kid in town

Wednesday brought a long-awaited break in the weather, with rain stopping, temperatures warming, and winds abating, though the rain was back by the late afternoon. Commercial traffic was heavy, with activity pent up during the storms of the past few days seemingly unleashed. There was excitement at the cruise terminal as the newly launched Norwegian Prima made its first arrival in New York after being launched in Iceland earlier this summer. Prima will run Caribbean cruises from here for the next few weeks. Disney’s Magic was also back in town, loading up for another cruise down to Bermuda.

Franklin Reinauer was heading for Newburgh with a cargo
Buchanan 12 made its usual rounds, passing the still-resident Moca
Helen was heading back to Coeymans with what looked like either sand or salt
A load of scrap came south in the afternoon rain
