Takeย it to the DOC!

Interesting Fact:

Binghamton was one of six identical screw-propelled double-ended ferryboats built by the Newport News Shipbuilding and Dry-dock Company at Newport News, Virginia in 1904-05 to designs by Gardner & Cox, naval architects. She was launched on February 20, 1905, with Miss Charlotte Emery, daughter of John M. Emery, the newly promoted superintendent of the Hoboken Ferry Company and Ferry Department of the DL&W, serving as her sponsor. Binghamton was completed a month later and left the Newport News yard on March 25 for the trip to Hoboken, New Jersey. She was placed in commission on April 3. Her Captain for the first crossing was Oren D. Relyea.

Her normal run was from the Hoboken Terminal to Barclay Street, a twelve-minute journey of approximately 1 and 3/4 miles, a trip made continuously nearly every day for more than sixty years (on occasion she substituted on the Hoboken – 23rd Street run).

  1. So are there any plans to dispose of or restore it? Kind if looks like it’s just sinking lower and lower as time goes on. Very cool photo and title ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Acutely their was not much of editing on this photo maybe made it a little of sharper. But didn’t touch the colors in it. Long exposure, plus a light night with a lot of wind and to top it off the build behind me had a greenish neon sing on. Thank you very much for stopping by and checking out my work. Happy Blogging. ๐Ÿ™‚
