If you were to click on one of those pictures at the right, the one that shows gravel barges on Hudson's waterfront and has the label "See photos," you would learn that the source of the photo is given as "gossipsofrivertown.blogspot.com."
I took this picture on October 5, 2011, and used it in a post published that day called "Riverfront Reconnaisance." The post was mostly about a wonderful restored 1926 motor yacht called Freedom which was then moored at a Hudson Power Boat Association dock, just south of their club house. Here's how how I related this picture to the yacht:
On the opposite end of Henry Hudson Riverfront Park this morning, in stark contrast to the restored grace and elegance of Freedom, a gravel barge was docked at the "port," extending well beyond Holcim property, halfway across the mouth of the adjacent slip, and intruding into what is now the southernmost part of our riverfront park.The picture was taken back in the day when Holcim owned South Bay and the dock, and O&G was the entity trucking gravel to the dock and shipping it out on barges. But it's a good picture. I like it, and I've used it twice since then in posts that mention Colarusso--on July 20, 2016, and January 27, 2017--which, of course, is how the internet made the connection.
