Bikes, shmikes: Couple commutes to work by kayak

Zach Schwitzky’s commute requires a life jacket and a change of clothes.

“We try to get ourselves smelling OK for the rest of the day,” he said.

For more than a year, Zach has kayaked from the beach of his Hoboken apartment across the Hudson to a Manhattan pier and then wheeled his vessel 10 blocks to work. On a good day, the entire journey takes less than an hour.

“There’s probably a much easier commute,” he said, “or a way to be much lazier in commuting.”

Zach doesn’t need to tell this to his girlfriend and coworker Milhelm Calderone. She said she never imagined paddling to work when she signed up — with Zach or his company.
