Quite often during the summer, Jetskiers circling Manhattan enter Inwood Park’s cove. It could be by error but it’s usually just to have fun. However, due to the fact that the cove is man made, dependent on tides, and subjected to human-caused erosion, more and more mud seeps in every year. Over the past 30 years the mud levels have reached an all time high. I find the number of stranded Jetskier’s and boaters continues to rise. The man above was part of a party of three who all got stuck. As it made quite the hilarious spectacle filled with police boats, fire trucks, and laughter, let’s hope they own those Jetskies and didn’t rent them. The tides take many hours to cycle.
