Barging into the bay

For months, local residents have been complaining about these mystery guests, saying that they look ugly, that trash has been sliding off them into the water, and that their presence could damage the fragile wetlands nearby. According to a joint city-federal study released in August, the Jamaica Bay marshlands are vanishing at the rate of 33 acres a year and will be mostly gone by 2012 unless something is done.

No owner or government agency has come to remove the barges.

Typical response. Just leave it there. Nevermind that no one knows what's on it.
