A dead body was found in the Hudson River this morning at the 79th Street Boat Basin. Officers retrieved the deceased from the north side of the marina’s A Dock, near the shoreline.
According to the NYPD, the call came in at 7:08. An adult male was found in the water and transferred to the city Medical Examiner, who will determine the cause of death.
The bike path was closed at the entrance to A dock as police investigated, forcing commuters to detour over the steps to the old Boat Basin Cafe.
