Burning off

The thick layer of haze that sat over New York from Sunday through Tuesday was finally burning off Wednesday afternoon. Temperatures were unseasonably warm, but with the sun setting before 6pm now for the rest of the winter, opportunities for photography are somewhat reduced. Tanker traffic remains heavy on the River, and the DonJon dredgers were back, this time working by the DSNY Pier 99 facility. Meanwhile, the crane that had been working at Pier 96 appears to have finished its business and made an early Wednesday departure. The Disney Magic was back at Pier 90, and Holland-American’s Rotterdam, its first time here in a while. Usually the H-A boats dock in Brooklyn, but Rotterdam was on a transit cruise, arriving in NYC from Europe on its way to take up its winter duties in the Caribbean.
