This January, Bill has made many deliveries to New York.
Many long haul truckers will not deliver to New York,
due to safety issues, traffic, congestion and road conditions.
This is even more of an issue in the Winter months.
Backing and turning a tractor-trailer (rig) down narrow streets
& alleys to position it in the unloading docks takes a lot of skill.
The tractor-trailer combination is between 65-67 feet, depending upon
how the tandems are set. The set-up varies depending upon the load.
(Please note: The trailer usually shows the company logo,
which I have removed here. Excuse the blurred look. )
This scene shows the tight quarters for truck maneuvering,
along with the street art of the Williamsburg/Brooklyn area.
Bill's delivery was located directly next to this park on
the East River, near the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway.
The Williamsburg Bridge is the suspension bridge
that connects the Lower East Side of Manhattan
to the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn.
A frigid dawn at Grand Ferry Park, Brooklyn, NY.
An important fence, this one holds very serious signs.
As a dog owner, I find the the first sign important to follow.
However, the second sign is extremely serious for everyone.
This sign warns...
"Wet Weather Discharge Point
This outfall may discharge rainwater mixed with
untreated sewage during or following rainfall
and can contain bacteria that can cause illness."
*This is followed by further instructions on what to do.
Note the No Swimming, No Boating, No Fishing icons.*
