Manatee Spotted in NYC
A manatee has been seen in the Hudson River near Manhattan.

The gentle behemeth, estimated at 10 feet long and close to 1,000 pounds, is far from home. Most manatees live in Florida and sightings even in Virginia are considered rare.

Watchers tracked this one last month as it swam north first near Delaware, then Maryland, then New Jersey. Saturday, it was seen at 23rd Street in Manhattan, then later at 125th Street in Harlem.

3. Usually, the water is way too cold for manatees
This summer heatwave has warmed the coastal and river waters to this level.
