A Jaunt Up the Hudson

By Vladimir Brezina

Midtown ManhattanThe Binghamton

A routine paddle from Lower Manhattan up the Hudson—up the West Side of Manhattan, under the George Washington Bridge and along the Palisades—and back, about 30 miles. Nothing special.

But I do have a few photos…

    • Well, it’s in New Jersey rather than in NY… ;-)

      While it floated, the Binghamton was at one time a prime piece of real estate—a restaurant—but events overtook it, and now it’s far too late for it to recover, as the photos show. I believe there is pressure for the owners to remove the wreck, and then the location will revert to just an unprime piece of muddy water…

  5. Bummer about the Binghamton. Every time I see it it looks a little worse for wear. I wish someone would fix it up. Maybe it could be towed to La Marina :)
