Just a short one today, on this Maritime Sunday.

A recent shot gathered onboard the Working Harbor Committee’s Port Newark Tour. Depicted is the Gramma Lee T Moran tugboat hurtling down the Kill Van Kull past the Atlantic Salt facility on Staten Island. Gramma has been described in some detail at this, your Newtown Pentacle, in the posting “Crooked Boughs” from back in December of 2011.

The Working Harbor 2012 Schedule is well underway-

  • Next Tuesday is the North River tour, with the legendary Bill Miller Brooklyn Tour, with Dan Wiley joining Capt. Doswell on the mike.
  • My own Newtown Creek tour is on the 22nd of this month.
  • Captain Margaret Flanagan will be leading a walking tour of South Street Seaport, the next one is on July 21.
  • Another Staten Island Walking Tour will be forthcoming from your humble narrator on July the 28th.

Check out for details and excursion schedules. Also, check out the Working Harbor blog here.
