Top of the World: The Secrets of the Seas of Nassau
Nassau Island, New York, USA, is the most photographed part of the U.S. mainland, with more than 50,000 tourists per day visiting the island, which is home to the world’s only sailboat launch pad.
In a new book, the New York Times Magazine writer, photographer, and author Anna Marie Poggio, joins a group of local experts in this article that chronicles the secrets of the waters of the Atlantic.
“Nassau is home, to me, to some of the most extraordinary places on the planet,” said Poggios, who has been exploring the Atlantic for several years.
“You can see them as they are floating, and it is impossible to imagine them as anything other than they are.”
One of the books most captivating features is an article written by Poggi that features an interview with a local fisherman, which includes the fisherman explaining the unique geography of the region and what he calls “the most spectacular ship launch pad in the world.”
“It’s very much the same as the launch pad at Port Canaveral in Florida, but there is so much more going on,” said Michael O’Brien, a local marine biologist.
“The first thing that comes to mind is the size of the ship and the size, of course, of the ocean.”
According to O’Briens book, this launch pad is the largest in the Atlantic, measuring 1,800 feet (400 meters) wide, with nearly a thousand launch pods.
“We know that they have a very different launch system than what we see on the launchpad at Port Florida,” said O’Donnell.
It’s actually a little bit more of a shock wave than what you see on Port Florida. “
And I would say, if you go up there and look, you’ll see it’s actually not that bad.
It’s actually a little bit more of a shock wave than what you see on Port Florida.
So it’s not that far off.”
In addition to its launch pads, the region also hosts numerous dive sites.
“There’s a great dive site in the center of the island,” said Ocean Exploration Director Mike O’Neil.
“It is a great area to go dive, and we know that it is the home of a lot of marine life.
And so, that’s why we have been able to establish there that area as a diving location, so that we can get a good look at these creatures, and get some good information out of them.”
O’Neal explained that divers are able to visit different areas of the Nassau islands, including the waterfalls of the Shoshone and Mohawk, and the famous St. Mark’s Cathedral.
“Diving is an important part of this ecosystem,” he said.
The location of the launch pads is another key reason why the region is so special to the locals. “
This is one of the best dive sites I’ve seen in the area, so we really want to make sure that we get the best quality information out there and to have it be available to the public.”
The location of the launch pads is another key reason why the region is so special to the locals.
“These launch pads are really very well protected,” said Mike Oates, a Nassau County supervisor.
“They are well maintained and protected by the county.
And there is very little impact to the environment.”
“We have this idea that we have to be very careful in how we build and what we put in there,” added Oates.
“If we can find some good places to build it and we can do it safely, it is very much our intention to protect it.”
“You need to be a little more careful,” added Poggia.
“Look at what you’re putting in there.
If you put too much in there, you can put too little, and you will have a problem.”
In the book, Poggias interviews several local fishermen who are on the lookout for these launch pads.
One of these fishermen, Richard Cramer, explained to Poggiacs that the launch site for the launch of the ships on Nassaurys waters is a relatively new one that is being constructed on the island.
“That is a new launch pad that was built in the mid-1970s, and that was the only one that has a sailboat, and now they are adding a second launch pad,” said Cramer.
“I believe they are going to put a new sailboat in there because it is in the middle of the lagoon.
So, it’s a really good idea to have the right sailboat.”
“They built a new place that is called St. Thomas and that is on the tip of Nassauria, and there is a lot to do there
