In the Spring of 2015 a lone seal frolicked in the waters of the Spuyten Duyvil. While the Inwood sighting was rare, seals have appeared in northern Manhattan before. In 2009 a harbor seal spent several weeks on the very same Columbia University dock before moving on.

Privately, I’ve nicknamed this little critter “Pop” in honor of “Pop” Seeley who operated a boathouse on the Spuyten Duyvil a century ago.

I hope you enjoy the video.
