Waterfront Indoc Trainers Take the East River to Chinatown

Waterfront Indoc Trainers have been spending long days working on the boats, equipment, and teaching skills they will need to introduce the 309 Plebe Candidates of the class of 2012 to a life at sea, but that still leaves some time to explore and enjoy New York Harbor. Last night took two vessels up the East River to explore Newtown Creek, on of the most historic waterways in New York, and at one time the busiest waterway in the nation. After checking out the site of the country's largest oil spill we headed to Chinatown for soup dumplings and ice cream at the famous Chinatown Ice Cream Factory.
