Message 4 Release Date 12/24/2005
Hi I released this bottle off of the Battery in New York City around 12:00PM on Christmas eve, 2005.
Please go to www.messageinabottleproject.com
and let me know where you found it.
Right off the Battery in New York City. You can see the Statue of Liberty in the background of the picture.
I was paddling with two friends from Pier 96 in Manhattan to Brooklyn. We paddled down to some old abandoned piers below the Gowanus Canal. This is a good spot to find old pottery and bottles, but when we got there the tide was a too high, and we didn't find very much stuff.
The weather was unseasonably warm. It must have been about 60 when we finished our lunch.
On the way back we found a giant block of Styrofoam and had fun crashing into it with our kayaks.
We went back up the Buttermilk Channel and stopped at Pier 26 to check out our old boathouse that had been torn down. The building was reduced to a pile of bricks and lumber.
