Tucked away on the west side of the small town of Broad Channel in the middle of Jamiaca Bay is a narrow, dead end, street that goes by the name of West 12th Road. Those of us who live there know that the nice part about living in a small town is that when you are not quite sure what is going on, someone else always does!

An NYPD helicopter fished two men out of Jamaica Bay on Monday after they got trapped in a marsh, law enforcement sources said.
Friends of the two pals, a kayaker and wind surfer, called cops at about 4:45 p.m. when they hadn’t returned from their time in the water.
An NYPD copter swooped down, plucked the men out of chilly waters and lowered them to safety in an open field off Cross Bay Boulevard, police said.
