Battery Park City is no stranger to visitors but on Friday Tom Jones arrived here in a very different manner. Jones went on 90 day paddleboard journey beginning in Key West, Fla. and finishing 1,500 miles later in Battery Park City. Jones, a Huntington Beach, Ca, native is trying to raise half a million dollars for his non-profit, Plastic Free Ocean. In addition to his water trek to BPC he has also paddleboarded 1,240 miles from Oregon to Mexico and ran 120 consecutive daily marathons from California to New York.
