Unique Manhattan Cruise on Board a Sludge Boat
What could be more romantic than a night-time cruise around Manhattan? How about doing so aboard a "sludge boat." That is, a boat carrying the city's treated sewage. Sadly, or thankfully, the trip is available only to the Citizens Advisory Committee to the Department of Environmental Protection, which manages NYC's sewage system. For the past six years, the department has been conducting an annual summer sludge boat cruise for the committe, and it's a big hit. Go figure.
