What a great photograph. The clarity of the 8 x 10 glass plate negative is remarkable. A lot of interesting details. Can't make out the name on float barges, but appears to be 12 letters - Pennsylvania?  All the way on right - two tugs towing at least three sailing ships. New York require this as ships under sail were difficult to control in the harbor traffic.
