Neistat, who has an affinity for New York City-themed viral videos (he was the one snowboarding in the streets of NYC behind a Jeep this winter), says in this video that paddleboarding from Brooklyn to Manhattan is something he’s always wanted to do.
So he got his friend Roy and did it. Surprisingly, it’s actually legal to do. But the NYPD sought them out immediately telling them they should be wearing life preservers. Thankfully, they didn’t fall in — thankfully due to the stigma (and some truth, some embellishment) that the East River is not the cleanest waterway around.
They didn’t really hatch a plan of what they’d do if they make it, so once in Manhattan they ask the NYPD for a ride back to Brooklyn Bridge Park where they shipped off from. And of course the NYPD obliges and drops them right on the walkway. Just another day in the life of Casey Neistat.
