No planned maintenance.
During periods of extreme viewer interest in certain one-off events like hurricanes, new ship arrivals, sick ship arrivals, etc. you may experience difficulty loading our webcam websites or be presented with "content not available" messages by our video players. Unfortunately, we have finite viewer capacity and it is not economically feasible for us to provide an infinitely scalable video service. We do provide some dedicated resources for our subscription services and they should provide you with a much more stable viewing platform during these events.
Please note that this section is updated manually and typically within 24-48 hours of a failure. PTZtv staff will have reviewed the failure condition and tried to correct remotely. Check back often for updates if you do not see your camera of interest.

Monday May 16th, 2022 : ATC audio feed has failed again. Unclear what the trigger event is for this issue. We replaced the power supply during our visit last month. Investigating further.
Tuesday April 26th, 2022 : While local Internet connection problems (very long latencies) persist, we are still pursuing alternate connection opportunities. You may see us lose camera control or not be able to follow ships very closely. You might also see video quality degrade, becoming heavily pixelated or momentarily frozen.
Update 1/28/2022 : Cameras have been removed from the Pier 66 site today. We hope to return them once construction work is completed, possibly 2024, and have been enthusiastically invited to do so. In the meantime, if we can find a temporary home for an elevated view camera then we will.
Update 1/24/2022 : We have been advised that as construction work is intensifying, power supply will be very erratic and we will need to remove/shutdown these cameras for possibly two years. Not wholly unexpected but nonetheless disappointing to lose the great views from Pier 66. Final removal details and date still to be determined.
You may see periods when the cameras are OFFLINE due to construction work at Pier 66 reaching our tower roof location. We have worked with management at the site to prolong our camera availability and thank them for their continued support and co-operation. However... there are no guarantees that we will be able to maintain 100% uptime.
Tuesday December 28th 2021 : Due to changing business and location conditions, we have reluctantly decided to discontinue this webcam.
December 2021 : In the absence of a working agreement with our partners, we have reluctantly decided to discontinue this webcam.
