Kayaking on the Hudson is the best NYC experience!
And I found a place that's FREE!
Downtownboathouse.org is an all volunteer organization. If you like to volunteer there are special trips and training available.
The best part is that the public can utilize all the facilities at no charge. They offer walk-up public kayaking, kayak trips on the harbor, evening classes, and a winter swimming pool program.
Kayaking is great exercise, it is relaxing and I think it is the best way to see the New York City skyline. So beautiful!
