Comments on: New Life for the Bronx and Harlem Rivers http://blog.epa.gov/blog/2012/08/new-life-for-the-bronx-and-harlem-rivers-2/ The EPA Blog Tue, 30 Jun 2015 05:33:42 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.1 By: cyndy kopitsky http://blog.epa.gov/blog/2012/08/new-life-for-the-bronx-and-harlem-rivers-2/#comment-4209 Thu, 30 Aug 2012 15:51:32 +0000 http://blog.epa.gov/greeningtheapple/?p=10452#comment-4209 Thanks for the clarification. I used this picture and the caption from another source, assuming that they were locals and knew all the details of this “far away place” to me. Can you tell that I am a Southern New Jersey resident and NOT a New Yorker? I would have known all this. Thank you for pointing the facts out clearly for others to see. Happy canoeing!

It is possible the Inwood Canoe Club could help with your October event. Mail me if you want to explore the possibilities. The water will be cool, so cool air or wind or rain might create some mild hypothermia risk.

Corrections: Neither of the bridges shown in the picture is mentioned in the caption, and the three bridges mentioned in the caption are not shown in the picture! The bridges in the picture are the Henry Hudson Bridge (arched) and the Amtrak Spuyten Duyvil Bridge (low swing bridge). Also, the neighborhood at left is Inwood, not Washington Heights. The Bronx neighborhood on the right is Spuyten Duyvil.
