Dolphin Dies in Polluted NYC Canal after Losing Its Way

In the Gowanus Canal, which runs a mile and a half through a narrow industrial zone near some of the wealthiest neighborhoods in Brooklyn, a seven foot dolphin swam last week. It is thought that he came from the canal from the Atlantic Ocean through the Lower and Upper New York Bays and then Gowanus Bay, which leads to the canal – about 20 miles away from the open ocean.
