Glorious fall conditions prevailed through the weekend with temperatures in the 60s and light winds. The leaf color line has finally moved down to New York City, with trees along the river looking fiery. River traffic was light, though there were many recreational boats heading north to see the colors.
Lovely fall weather was interrupted by a stormy Thursday, but conditions improved dramatically again at the end of the week. River traffic seemed light, and a couple of tugs anchored in the River Thursday after a period of empty anchorages. Cruise terminal activity was sporadic, and the dredgers appear to have moved on, with the…
Splendid weather has persisted as we move deeper into October and leave the hurricanes that dominated the beginning of the month behind. Leaves are reportedly turning up north, but things still look pretty green down here. Limited time for observation, shorter days, and seemingly lighter commercial traffic means blog posts have become shorter and less…

Temperatures barely got into the 60s Friday as New York heads into a soaked weekend thanks to the remnants of Hurricane Ian.
