A Nauti Fantasy

Another voice from the world of nautical blogs has spoken up about Short Seas. In this posting Bowsprite provides an artfully illustrated microcosmic view of a future where Short Seas Shipping in NY Harbor is an essential part of everyday life:

"We currently have no little ports around our city, no working piers, limited usable docks, nowhere for
feederships and lighters to tie up, some stevedores, but, no cranes for longshoremen to operate, nor storage facilities or transit sheds to hold the break bulk. Notice, above, how many piers there were in 1933?

However, we have the water. NYC is richly blessed with waterways that can transport stuff into the hinterlands."

Go harbor shipping!
