Only in New York:
New York Waterway Capt. Vince Lombardi, operating a ferry in the Hudson, said he noticed something in the water as the boat pulled out of Pier 70.

"I said to my deck hand, 'That's an odd-looking boat,' " he told reporters Friday.

"He said, 'I think that's an airplane.'"
Keys to the city, all 'round.

Plane in Hudson tells story of what went right - CNN, 1/16/09.

I said good thing this happened before dark. Although inside the plane was already pretty dark. Jeff said good thing it happened before budget cuts eliminate ferry service.

The guys on NBC 4 NY described the water as "pure Adirondack snowmelt" and "barely liquid." There's no question it was friggin' cold but geez.
