"Captains of vessels traversing this perilous one mile passage of the East River described it in logs dating back to the early 1700s, as a key gateway to the Atlantic, marked with a giant whirlpool, punctuated with rocks,reefs, and islands.
To a sea captain worth his salt, it must have appeared as
the gate to Hell".
