2 Canoes Paddling East River Passing Roosevelt Island This Morning - Nice Way To Commute, If Roosevelt Island Had A Kayak/Boat Launch Dock

Spotted 2 canoes paddling on East River passing Roosevelt Island this morning.

Next time the F train subway and Tram go out of service, maybe we can all

hitch a canoe ride

across the East River.

Would be great if Roosevelt Island could get a kayak/canoe dock. In 2012, RIOC issued a Request For Proposals for a Kayak/Rowing facility but that did not work out well.

At least for now, we can kayak across the river in Queens at the Long Island City Community Boathouse at Hallets Cove at Vernon B'lvd and 31st Avenue and
