This type of pollution is continuous throughout the coast line. We do not even teach proper recycling to the younger generations. Plastic/glass bottles floating everywhere. Boating waste along the shore. A walk along the shoreline in the NJ Pine Barrens area shows muck and grass residue clumped in a black tar type residue. Our use of petroleum products leaves this oily residue on every street and highway where rain washes it down our storm sewers to end up in every water way to the shoreline.
They are specifically talking about Gowanus Canal. Go to Newtown Creek between Brooklyn and Queens. I would assume there is quite a bit of pollution in that area as well. They should ask NATURE to help by pumping cleaner water from the mouth area up to the closed ends so as have the flow wash more contaminates out.
To have a chance of cleanup they(our local government) should build a small pumping station at the mouth of these close ended waterways and extend a few 12 inch diameter pipes to the far end and pump water in continuously. This will at least improve the clean water flow so as to give NATURE a chance to clean naturally. At present tidal change and rain is the only way cleaning is being done.
Unfortunately his will never happen because our inept politicians do not understand how our world works!!!

Very satisfied with the service cable and internet are great. When you own your equipment and know to use the fullest capabilities of your devices and the service itself contribute to an awesome experience, would not think of switching to other service providers. Wifi extends at least to Five houses away from mine, with speeds up to 28mbps down and 5 up on the basic internet plan. Fast and reliable phone connection too. Overall monthly service price could be more competitive though.

The restored bridge Just as great as the original, its safe and is historically accurate. The current restoration resembles the original bridge when it carried water "like a tub" for the canal boats crossing over the Delaware. The cables are inside the tub structure, not like on a road bridge where they are fully visible.

Great friendly short line railway, had a blast on the recent Lehigh Limited trip, for the 110th anniversary of the M&E. The M&E does a great job for what they have and own as a rail company. Hope they can expand operations in Northern NJ, and soon add more of those great excursion trips like the Lehigh Limited was.

One of the best tourist scenic train rides in country, as a railroader two thumbs up. The day I took the train it was raining so the train on the first and second attempts did not make the grade to Frostburg on third try the train made it up the hill, as a railroader wow the experience was unique.
