Kayaking on the Hudson

On my way downtown I shot some people kayaking on the Hudson. They’re able to do so thanks to a volunteer organization called The New York City Downtown Boathouse.  The problem is, you have to stay inside that—not sure what to call it—inlet part, and you can’t go out on the river beyond the pier. Of course within minutes you start longing to go out on the river to explore.

At the very end of filming I thought, ‘Oh, I should get the Statue of Liberty in there,’ so I quick panned back to the left so you could get my teeny, tiny view of the Statue of Liberty.

All those building in New Jersey? Weren’t there when I first moved to the Village. (1980.)
