This recording was made on a floating pontoon on the Hudson River near Newport-Pavonia PATH Station, Jersey City. The original intention was to record the creaks of the gangway as the pontoon moved up and down, but there was a lot of helicopter activity that day, due to a terrorist alert in Manhattan. The resultant recording has a nice sense of space and movement with some very good localization. The creaks should mainly come from behind and to the right of the listening position and the copters should pass above and in front.
