Gothamist: There Are Two Dolphins In The East River

“On Wednesday, a dolphin was spotted swimming around in the East River near 96th Street. Then on Friday, a dolphin was spotted on the other side of the East River near Astoria. Officials from the Riverhead Foundation weren’t sure whether it was the same dolphin or a second one, but members of the North Brooklyn Boat Club took to the water yesterday and confirmed there are TWO dolphins currently hanging out in the East River. And like a lot of Manhattan residents, the bottlenosed dolphin from the Upper East Side has moved to Greenpoint.

“We paddled out today and saw the dolphin further south—near Greenpoint,” North Brooklyn Boat Club member Willis Elkins told us. Despite the snowy conditions, they spotted the second dolphin uptown: “Kayakers from our club also spotted a second, and smaller, dolphin north from where we were in the canoe—near the Queensboro bridge on the west channel,” he said.”
