From The Could Be Nothing Files: 57 ships Anchored off shore of NJ, MD/VA
From Investment Watch:
Saw your post on unusual pattern of ships anchored off the eastern seaboard and thought I'd mention this as well.
I am including three photos I took in New York Harbor a couple of weeks ago.
This was the second time I was departing NY on a ship in the last 14 months and note security measures were much more apparent this time.
Police boats escorted us out of harbor while a NYPD helicopter hovered back and forth over our ship the entire length of the harbor.
What seemed even more out of the ordinary was the site of several barges anchored together in the bay. Barges are commonly seen on the river or in harbor, but I've never seen multiple barges anchored in pairs or multiples scattered in a random pattern like that before.
Don't know what to make of it but thought I'd mention it to you, given the topic of your post, "From The Could Be Nothing Files: 57 ships Anchored off shore of NJ, MD/VA". ???? - HRW
