LILAC panorama

LILAC panorama
Made by epicharmus
The Lilac is a steam-powered ship that used to bring supplies to lighthouses and engaged in the occasional fire-fighting chore. Later, she was saved from a salvage yard, and listed on the National Register of Historic Places early in '05. She's still in good condition, though as you'll see from my photos, she could stand a few coats of paint, but I guess they'll take care of it once they're near finished with the restoration. One of the crew said they may get her to run on BIO-DIESEL, YEAH! So give money and supplies to the Lilac Preservation Project. They've even got a Paypal account: www.steamerlilac.org/ National Register Number: 04001441

NYC - West Village: Pier 40 - Trans-Atlantic cruise mosaic map
Made by wallyg
Pier 40 was built in the early 1960's and is the newest pier in the Hudson River. It was first used by Holland America Cruises, and Frank Nix' 12-by-20-foot mosaic map of the world in a lobby shows the four four vessels that sailed under the name Rotterdam alog with a map of Europe with Holland America's ports of call. The map displays a miscellany of national symbols: windmill, harp, Eiffel Tower and, for Belgium, the Atomium structure built in 1958, the same year that work began on Pier 40 and jetliners began crossing the Atlantic, dooming the pier as a passenger terminal even before it opened.

This wasn't intended to be a GWNYC submission, but it's a special occasion: Martin & I were out on our evening walk, when we came across this pillar. I was trying in vain to get the dog to smile for the camera, when a voice behind me said, I think I know that dog. Is it Martin? I turned around, said that she was, and introduced himself! Small world, eh? So, pleasure meeting you -ytf-, here's the photo as promised, but you're ineligible to guess......
