East River Restrictions - Addtional Information

Posted: 09/22/2014

I contacted the Coast Guard for an update on the East river closures this week. The current plan is for the East river to be closed to traffic completely from 10:00 to 17:00 on Wed, 9/24. There will also be closures from 12:00 to 14:15 on Tues, 9/23 and Thurs, 9/25 in the vicinity of the heliport.

Transit at any other time between 7am and 7pm will require using the East Channel at Roosevelt Island. Vessels that require opening of the Roosevelt Island Bridge must contact the bridge tender at least 15 minutes in advance by phone at (718) 545-2092 from 6:00 am to 8:00 pm or via VHF-FM CH13.

Club Historian Needs Help Identifying Old Pictures

Posted: 09/21/2014

There are two pictures (see links below) that I am having great difficulty with and can use all the help I can get. 

1st Picture - Unknown Evening Event:
Can you identify the event and/or any of the people in the picture?  Charlie Luff (P/C 1972 & 1973) is the one standing.

2nd Picture - Unknown Event:
Can you identify the event and/or any of the people in the picture in addition to Howard Dawson (P/C 1961) and Eugene Melski (P/C 1964)?

Any help would be appreciated.
