One of the best and most enjoyable places to watch maritime activity is from the restaruant Blue. Located at 1115 Richmond Terrace on Staten Island (across from Snug Harbor), Blue features a great, wide panoramic view of busy ship activity on the Kill Van Kull.

As somewhat of an amusing observation, there's an boat that's regularly moored near Miller's Launch that has Dancing (and not here visibly Dining) written on it, that at one time, must've been a party boat. Obviously now it's being used for some other mysterious maritime purpose. 














Usually closed from public view, here's a peek inside a small part of Miller's Launch docking area and beyond.

This boat was recently moored near Miller's Launch with an impressive display of lights that went up to form a Christmas tree around the mast. Unfortunately, we missed the opportunity to take a shot while the lights were on, and as of December 28th, was no longer illuminated. It now appears, the boat is now gone. Just another lesson in taking advantage of the moment. If it should reappear, we shall try again.

Happy 2017! On this rather dreary 2nd day of the year, here's a North shoreline shot on Front St., Staten Island.
