Here are some photos from this morning at South Street. Under the auspices of the NYC Economic Development Corporation, who appear to have taken over the decision-making from the museum administration and are calling the shots on the piers, we’re seeing activity and preparation for Hurricane Irene.
Offers of expertise and manpower have been rebuffed over the last few days.
[Update: We neglected to say below that Tug W.O. Decker is also underway up the Hudson with Schooners Pioneer and Lettie G. Howard. No photo, unfortunately. Also, two new photos added below, Pioneer and Lettie departing this morning.]
