Day 851

Philip T. Feeney

Named Germania when it was launched in 1892, this tugboat (closer look) has been stranded here at the northern end of Port Richmond Avenue for at least a decade. (It was apparently in better shape and being restored as recently as the early to mid-1990s.) Right beside it, you can see the last remains of an old wooden barge that had also been grounded here for quite some time. The barge caught fire a few years ago, and what was left of it has deteriorated even further since then.

    the colors in this photo don’t hit you at first, but the overcast sky sure brings them out.
