Roosevelt Island Is A Great Place To Watch Boats Passing By On The East River - Anybody Interested In A Roosevelt Island East River Kayaking Program
One of the great things about living on Roosevelt Island is the opportunity to see all different types of boats travelling the East River.
Last night I spotted this fast moving speedboat passing Roosevelt Island approaching and then underneath the Queensboro bridge
leaving behind a sizeable wake.
Over the last weekend, a much more leisurely paced rowboat was passing by
and a flotilla of sailboats followed by a tug pushing a barge.
Not to mention the East River pirate ship, solar powered catamaran, inflatable duck, kayakers, house, and even dolphin.
It's a real shame Roosevelt Island does not have direct access to the East River for a Kayak Launch.
The Long Island City Community Boathouse has expressed a willingness to start a Roosevelt Island kayaking program.
