Cruisers on the West side piers and Boaters up the Hudson River have been seeing this 'massive' manatee
in the water.
Was seen yesterday by the Chelsea piers
Manatees are usually found in Florida's warm waters
but have been known to once in a while pop up the Coast.

Jeez , last time I saw one of these in the 'wild' was
while a kid floating in glass bottom boat in Fla.

This manatee made it up North to Cape Cod , was seen off Mass. last Thurs
before heading back down South .
The word is the water was unusually warm way up the coast this year and
the creature just followed a warm current all the way up ...
A long way from home !
