Salt delivery

February 8th, 2014

The bulk carrier Balder is docked here at the Atlantic Salt Company, which supplies most of NYC's road salt — hundreds of thousands of tons of the stuff. Almost all of the city's salt is of foreign origin; it's cheaper to transport it from other countries by ship than from upstate by train. You can check out some cool shots of Balder's interior here, and see the ship in action (i.e., unloading salt) here.
