Welcome M/V "Molly Pitcher", the newest addition to NY Waterway's fleet.
Alan Colletti from our office provided new vessel construction oversight services while the vessel was built at Yank Marine. Here's Arthur Imperatore during the boat's christening, thanking Al for being such a worrier!
In 1994, M&O leased the then new Jeep Grand Cherokee, with miles per gallon in the 17 mile range.
Twenty years later M&O has returned to the Jeep brand with the leasing of the new "Eco Diesel" Jeep Grand Cherokee, which can get some 33 miles per gallon on the highway.

The actual slogan is “Trenton Makes, the World Takes”, and even in that form it is still a pretty weird slogan. The slogan originated very early in the 20th century when Trenton, NJ just about made anything, and it is supposed to mean: “Trenton makes the stuff that the rest of the world buys”. I suppose at the time there was no budget for that many letters and it didn’t rhyme and therefore the shorter slogan was fitted in neon on the Lower Delaware River Bridge.
Still it was true, not just Trenton, but all of New Jersey was an incredible manufacturing hot bed starting with the country’s first industrial park at Paterson Falls, NJ in 1791. Towns such as Perth Amboy and many others in New Jersey were just as capable, but is New Jersey's manufacturing prowess gone forever?
M&O covers quite a range of waterfronts. Some we only visit occasionally (for example, Bahia Blanca, Argentina we visit no more than about once a decade) but others we visit on an almost daily basis.
The Delaware River ports are home turf for us, but every now and then we need to check the internet to make sure we show up at the right gate. Chris Law made such a website visit recently and came across this link: http://www.holtlogistics.com/riverside-renewable-energy
This was such an interesting link that we copy the picture on it right here:
Nobody has ever made a list of all the company's addresses in its 137 year history, but since the middle 1920's the firm has only had four addresses:
25 Broadway, NYC, the classic Cunard building in downtown Manhattan, where we were reportedly the first tenants after the main tenant, Cunard.
65 Broadway, NYC, which at the time was also the headquarters of ABS.
90 Washington Street, a very attractive 25th floor office with beautiful views of New York harbor.
