U-Boat in Red Hook
New York's waterways are full of surprises: Sludgie the whale, and sharks are among the unique sea creatures spotted; and we've read about dead bodies in the East River and seen sailboats along the Gowanus Canal. Today's find was no exception. Birthed in the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal lies what appears to be a submarine.
We're very thin on facts regarding this diver. Perhaps its part of George Bush's war on terror. Or perhaps it is birthed in Brooklyn as a means to close the border. We're just not sure.
Our friends at Gowanus Lounge just ran a post with the history of the sub. It is the USS Growler, and it has been looking for a home for a little while.
