Release Date 4/14/2006
Released the bottle off of North Brother Island around 13:00.
It was a rainy Saturday. I paddled up to the Bronx River from Red Hook in Brooklyn. I had the tide with me both ways, and it only took about 2 hours to get up to NBI.
After releasing the bottle I paddled further north, and up the Bronx river for a little while. I stopped when I got to very dirty oily boom about 1 mile into the river.
On the way back downtown there were some very interesting whirlpools in Hell's Gate. I stopped at 23rd St at the Waterside Plaza and walked over and went shopping at the Farmer's Market in Union Square.
