That map might be more immediate to me than most. I spent the afternoon kayak fishing in the Kill Van Kull, a 1/4 mile waterway that leads from NY Harbor to Ports Newark & Elizabeth. It’s pretty awe inspiring watching gigantic tankers, container ship and car carriers coming and going on their 10 thousand mile trips. A fascinating thing is they leave very little wake, less than big sport fishing boat. Waves are wasted fuel.
