Good Friday saw limited traffic on the North River, though some barges were moving early. The Rotterdam remained at Pier 88 for a second day, preparing to sail for Holland where she will join a celebration for the 150-year anniversary of the Holland-America Line. Late in the day, the bulk ship SSI Magnificent came up the North River late in the day, signaling Cementon, NY after spending some time tied up at the Lehigh Cement facility in Brooklyn Navy Yard. The Catskill NY plant had been shutdown for years but seems to have been reopened as a dry cement import terminal, similar to the Brooklyn Navy Yard facility.
