New York Bay from the East River Channel, (painting)
Moran, Edward b. 1829
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 404
"See no. 172. We look down the river from a point a short distance below where the Brooklyn bridge crosses it. At the left, the gray circular structure is fort castle William on governor's island, and further to the left the military barracks may be seen. The forest of masts on the extreme right obscures the lower portion of New York City, where are the battery park and castle garden. There is the effect of a breezy day in the picture, and the boats seem actually to move in the turbulent water. There is also a good portrayal of action in the figures in the boats."
