It’s a 102 degrees outside, who wants to go to New York City for the day? At first not me, but with no pool and no AC the idea of sitting on a cold train for an hour didn’t seem all that bad. I went down to Hudson River Park where you can rent a kayak for free, and paddled around the Hudson River. You’re not allowed to take the kayak out of the harbor so it’s not much of an adventure, but the water was cold and the view is awesome.
If you’re looking for something different to do in NYC, this is definitely worth trying. Everyone’s been to a Broadway show and seen the Statue of Liberty, but how many people have gone kayaking in New York City?
