Photos Of The Week – 8/15/11

With industrial Sunset Park in the background, the Buchanan 1

…comes out of Erie Basin Cut with a loaded stone scow…

…and is immediately hit hard from the port side by the strong flood coming up the bay…

…which sets them up over the top of the Bay Ridge Anchorage as they head across to New Jersey.

Red Hook’s pre-Civil War brick warehouse waterfront, at the foot of Van Brunt St., and the just-for-show cranes of the old Todd Shipyard (now an Ikea), can be seen behind them. Forgotten NY has some interesting Red Hook observations and history, for all you urban archeology buffs  out there.
