Watch a man bike across the Hudson River (video)
Today, a New Yorker biked from Hoboken to Manhattan via the river on a pedal-powered raft of his own design.

This morning, Judah Schiller became the first person to bike across the Hudson River. The 41-year-old New Yorker designed the bulky yellow floating device himself by placing a regular two-wheeler on a pedal-powered, catamaran-like structure. He crossed the river from Hoboken to Manhattan's Pier 66 in just 15 minutes, and said, "It was probably the best New York City commute." WNYC was there to capture video; check it out below.
