For the curious people, it may seem that the "New York's East River Humpback Whale Sighting" will be a regular already. In a report by NJ.com, Gotham Whale President Paul Sieswerda is quoted saying, "They're coming back more and more and it's most likely going to be a more common occurrence." Why it's happening? Definitely, it's all about food. Because of the river's good condition, it can already support the food intake of the whales.

The sighting was the spotted along New York's Upper East Side, Notably, New York Police Department's twitter account revealed the entire report. While patrolling for the New Year's celebration, NYPD special operations police got shots of the reported Humpback Whale.
