Paddle To The Verrazano-Narrows Bridge!

We venture south from the Pier 84 Boathouse down the Hudson River, past The Battery and the Statue of Liberty, and into the Upper Bay. We paddle past Ellis Island, Liberty Island, and Staten Island. We drift under the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, the 4,260-foot double-decker bridge spanning Brooklyn and Staten Island. Just in time for lunch, we land at a hidden beach. We picnic on the beach then head back home. We cover 25 miles round trip.
