Dear Ms. Marble,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located one pertinent series Unclassified General Correspondence, 1960 in the Records of the Bureau of Ships (Record Group 19) but it did not include any information about the transfer or sale of the Navy tugboat YTL-479 to the New York City Department of Public Works in 1960.
For further information we suggest that you contact the Operational Archives Branch, Naval History & Heritage Command, 805 Kidder Breese Street, SE, Washington Navy Yard, Washington, DC 20374-5060 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may also wish to contact the New York City Department of Public Works for any records and/or information that they have about this purchase or sale in their holdings.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research.
