The tide was going out as I crossed The Gowanus Canal on the 9th Street bridge.
I really don't feel comfortable swimming anywhere downstream from that.
Unfortunately, the list of waters that I consider downstream includes the Atlantic Ocean.
We are really going back to lake Minnewaska State Park this Summer
Anyway, back in Prospect Park the ducks were enjoying a puddle. I am not sure if this is not as bad as the Gowanus Canal
