New York Times solves Jamaica Bay National Wildlife Refuge Hindu Conundrum

A couple of years ago, after stumbling upon countless yards of cheap saffron and scarlet "silk," ruined, rotting offerings, washed-up floats and soggy bunting littering the pebbly beaches of eastern Queens, I blogged about the evident use of Jamaica Bay for an unspecified Hindu ritual. Finally, the New York Times explains. Broad Channel, apparently, is New York City's answer to the mighty Ganges.

love the pic of the ghee can! glad that this mystery has been solved. I do find it a bit rich that people are so upset about Hindus dumping coconuts and milk in the bay. I am sure there are far more toxic substances being pumped in there each day.
