You can rent kayaks for free on the Hudson River. It’s a great thing, and I’ve done it. But honestly, I prefer smaller rivers, like the Nissequogue River on Long Island. You feel more like you’re kayaking, I’m not sure why. Maybe because it feels closer to nature.
I've written six non-fiction books, the most recent is Damnation Island: Poor, Sick, Mad, and Criminal in 19th-Century New York.View all posts by Stacy Horn →
