Red Tide Bacteria Found Over 9.5-Mile Area of New York City's Upper Harbor

The U.S. Coast Guard said a “reddish sheen” was reported on the water in the upper harbor of New York that has been identified as a red tide outbreak, an accumulation of bacteria whose dense concentration turns the affected water reddish brown.

The reddish color was reported at about 7 a.m. and a Coast Guard investigation team was dispatched to the scene, which stretched from the vicinity of the USS Intrepid Museum to Hoffman Island, a distance of 9.5 miles (15 kilometers).
