Humpback whale spotted cruising in New York Harbor

A fin-tastic time in New York! Stunning video shows humpback whale surfacing in the harbor near the Statue of Liberty and One World Trade Center

Tourism during the COVID-19 pandemic may be down but one mammal had a whale of a time sightseeing in New York Harbor this week.

A humpback whale ready for its close-up frolicked in front of the Statue of Liberty, One World Trade Center and other iconic sights on Tuesday.

‘The whale just blew about 1,000 feet off my bow!’ Bjoern Kils, 41, gasped as he snapped photographs of the creature he estimated to be about 40 feet long.

The United States Coast Guard confirmed reports of the sighting, but said it would get involved only if the whale became entangled or otherwise became endangered.

‘We’re aware, but it’s pretty normal that we get whales out there,’ Petty Officer Anthony Pappaly told Reuters.
