Tuesday traffic

After a slow start to the month, Tuesday brought some notable traffic to the North River, including some overseas cargos heading upstate on foreign flagged vessels. Pier 88 was also busy as the city’s Economic Development Corporation assembled some working boats from the Harbor for what seemed to be a career day for local students. The Coast Guard even brought one of their Jayhawk choppers down from Cape Cod to do an air/sea rescue demonstration.

The bulker Stoja headed for Coeymans Tuesday morning, arriving from Garrucha, Spain, which means the cargo is likely to have been gypsum.
