According to DailyMail, while patrolling the East River on New Years Eve, the New York Police Department encountered a new type of tourist. A WHALE!
NYPD Special Operations department captured some footage below:
According to the NYPD’s twitter post, the whale was seen swimming along the shores of Manhattan’s upper East Side, which is actually close to where the Mayor lives in Gracie Mansion.
The authorities warned local mariners of the humpback whale’s presence and are taking extra motoring precautions.
Hopefully the humpback stays safe during its trip to the Big Apple!
