The Travels of Tug 44

Port of Albany - Hudson River

The old D & H Railroad Building, in it's fortress-like splendor, is prominent on the City of Albany skyline. Originally I was convinced this was the State Capitol Building, until a friend corrected me (Thanks, Howard!). A replica of Henry Hudson's ship Half Moon is tied to the pier at the lower right corner.

Albany is a prosperous city with many modern buildings.

The Port of Albany is a modern busy port and can service ocean-going vessels.

Numerous bulk-loading terminals line both sides of the river at the Port of Albany

Tug Kathleen Turecamo is a frequent visitor here. Her 1,700 horsepower can get the job done. No doubt she was named after our "admiral" Kathy who is also a Kathleen.

The WW2 Destroyer Escot Slater makes her home port here as a museum.
