A New York harbor pilot boat passes close enough for four members of the crew to be seen. Following the sailing vessel is a steamship.
From a contemporary Edison Company catalog: PILOT BOATS IN NEW YORK HARBOR. A close view of an eighty footer, schooner rigged, trim as a private yacht, skimming over the waters of the harbor near Robin's Reef, [where a] picturesque little lighthouse is seen in the near background. A steamer decked with bunting also passes by at close range.
