Hear the One About the Guy Who Kayaks to Work?

This guy is hardcore.

Yes, New York schoolteacher Sean Patch rides his kayak to and from work every day, zooming across the Hudson.

Reports WCBS Radio (mind you, a few months ago):

Sean Patch is ready to paddle his kayak across the Hudson to work, which is no easy feat. Patch says he has to navagate around, “…oil barges, tankers, cruise ships.”

Patch, an algebra teacher at a high school in Manhattan, used to take the ferry, but it became rather expensive.

His commute has become a classroom lesson. Patch says it goes like this. “Mr. Patch kayaks to work. He bought the kayak for $850. He no longer has to pay for the ferry $7.75 each way. How much has he saved?”

  1. Hi,

    Great article! I’d like to do a story on Sean. I am a young filmmaker in NYC. Let me know if you can put me in touch with him somehow. Thank you!
