You never know who you might run into on Roosevelt Island and sometimes the person you unexpectedly meet is paddling on the East River.
Earlier today, I met a couple who were considering moving to Roosevelt Island as we were both walking on the West Promenade watching East River Kayakers paddling close to the Roosevelt Island shoreline.
The couple and I were talking about what it is like living on Roosevelt Island when I recognized the leader of the Kayakers - Ted from the Long Island City Community Boat House. Ted recognized me,
shouted out that they were on their way to Hallets Cove in LIC
and that he wished there was a place on Roosevelt Island to dock and launch kayaks.
Here are the kayaks from earlier today.
Anybody else interested in Roosevelt Island Kayaking - the Long Island City Community Boathouse has expressed a willingness to start a Roosevelt Island kayaking program.
