The Coast Guard is warning boaters in New York Harbor to be on watch after several whale were spotted. The first report of a whale near the Statue of Liberty came in about 8 a.m. on Thursday.
All the sightings have been between the Staten Island Ferry's St. George and Whitehall terminals, according to reports.
"We have seen several reports and we consider them reliable," Charles Rowe, a Coast Guard spokesman, told Patch.
