Happy New Year!

 

                                  Karatzas Marine Advisors & Co

                                                    Wishes you

            A most Prosperous, Productive, Happy New Year 2016!

This year’s theme are pictures of commercial ships calling the New York Harbor. The Statue of Liberty, Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, the newly opened World Trade Center, the Brooklyn Bridge, the Manhattan Bridge, the Empire State Building, and the lower Manhattan skyline can be seen in most images. One World Financial Center, where our offices are located, can be seen in the shadow and in front of the World Trade Center! We are located on the 30th floor of a 39-floor building, shadowed one city block north-east by the 104-floor (1776 ft) World Trade Center.

Shipping is both our vocation and avocation!

    Happy New Year!
