Henry Olrogge of East River Road snapped some photos of the first commercial vessel coming down the East River this week. Jeff Cooke wrote in and said it was the Calusa Coast tug with the Delaware barge and that it was headed to the NOCO dock, located on the Tonawanda side of South Grand Island Bridge. The barge delivers petroleum to NOCO. Jeff also sent in a "pro" photo of the Calusa Coast. Thanks guys!
