After the wind

Skies cleared and winds moderated Friday, setting up favorable conditions for the weekend. As conditions improved, the crowd of tug/barge combinations anchored on the River dispersed and went back to work. Haggerty Girls pulled up their hook just after sundown on Thursday and B. Franklin Reinauer was on their way before sunrise on Friday. Stephen L. Reinauer remained in place off 72nd Street though, as did Mount Saint Elias anchored north of the Bridge. Evelyn Cutler left her anchorage off Yonkers Friday afternoon and new cargos were heading north.
