Kayaking Around Manhattan

On Friday, July 9th the Young Men’s and Women’s Real Estate Association hosted its fifth Kayaking Day.  This year we took it up a significant notch and kayaked around the entire borough of Manhattan.  I was accompanied by Robin Fisher (Newmark Knight Frank), David Brause (Brause Realty), Gary Trock and his two sons (CBRE), Lindsay Ornstein (Centric Real Estate Advisors), Bill Montana (Studley), Alex Bernstein (Bernstein Real Estate), and others including Erik Baard and the wonderful staff from the Long Island City Boathouse.  It was a grueling day, filled with bad sunburns, sore shoulders and an unprecedented amount of complaining, but it was a great accomplishment to complete the nearly 12 hour journey.
