For your rainy evening commute


EV Grieve International Jet Sports Boating Association correspondent Bobby Williams took this shot the other day on 10th Street near Avenue C. And yes, this is Mayor Bloomberg's first public jet-ski-sharing program that will encourage commuters to rent jet skis for 30-minute intervals in a zone south of midtown Manhattan and some surrounding neighborhoods when it's raining. Largely geared at those running errands or with short commutes, the jet-ski share proposes allowing renters to pick up jet skis from one location, and drop them off at another, with stations located every few blocks.

Yeah, I’ll wave run in the East River. If feces fly. Oh, I forgot, if I do so, they will. Seriously, I have seen waver runners going about their business plenty of times in the East River. E coli and heavy toxic metals anyone?

I'd be into this.

Actually thought about garaging one of these at the east river marina in case of another terrorist attack.
