Gowanus Whale Tale PM Update

We've heard from a variety of people today about the Gowanus whale who's been tentatively nicknamed Sludgie. The whale is still there. At one point it was reported to have moved further away from the entrance to the Gowanus Canal, toward 27th Street. More recently, it has been reported nearer to the Home Depot, which puts it closer to Hamilton Avenue. Marine biologists are on the scene and say the whale appears to be in good health. They also say the whale will be hard to coax away from the Gowanus unless he/she actually wants to leave.
