Still no up-close-and-personal for me and the "island." I attempted to get over to the river on the Upper West Side today, but didn't plan very well and ended up having to bail on my attempt when it got late. But through the magic of Flickr, there are some other amateur photos to see. Check out the "floating island" tag. There are 32 shots as I post this. According to the time stamp on some of them, it appears the island was very late in arriving on Saturday night -- it says after 7 p.m. on a few of them.
Bad island. Be more punctual next time!
