Man in Suit Paddleboards Across River to Make NYC Work Meeting on Time


A New Jersey man didn’t want to be late for his interview, so he decided to paddleboard across the Hudson River to get there. Scott Holt, 32, said he was running late for an interview in New York on Thursday and didn’t want to “splurge on a ferry.” Instead, he grabbed his paddleboard and made his way onto the river, clad in a full suit and shoes. “I actually expected it to take a really long time but it only took like a half hour,” Holt told Inside Edition.
