Whales Return to NYC

Whales Return to NYC - 'Menagerie of giants' calling New York's waters home:

(Newser) – Whales have returned to the waters around the Big Apple in numbers not seen for at least a century, a comeback experts believe is the result of anti-hunting laws and cleaner waters. Dolphins and seals have also made triumphant returns, and one ferryboat captain estimates the numbers of marine mammals have risen tenfold in recent years. One pod of at least 30 fin whales lives in the waters just beyond the Verrazano Bridge.
I haven't been on a whale watch since at least middle school, but it is simply an awesome experience.

The way it's snowing up there, it's a good thing they aren't orcas.
