If Those Are Really Coney Island Whitefish In The Water At Brooklyn Bridge Park, They Must Be Artisanal, Organic And/Or Sustainable

Anyone who grew up in New York City when it was “gritty” knows what about the then ubiquitous ‘Coney Island Whitefish‘.

A BHB reader spotted the now rare(?) swimmers in the water at Brooklyn Bridge Park recently and sent the accompanying photo with this dispatch:

Either it’s collecting waste from somewhere, or bbpark is a new nightspot for some.

Well, given the climate of “hipster” Brooklyn what with it’s CURATED flea markets, hand crafted pickles, wacky beards, burgers with ramen noodles acting as a bun and what not, it wouldn’t surprise us if there’s an Etsy vendor cranking these things out ironically.

    Where was the reader doing his rubbernecking? Wherever it was, that water could use some prophylaxis. Or is the reader’s missive simply a Trojan horse for some ulterior purpose?
