A decommissioned Staten Island Ferry docked 60 miles north of New York City on the Hudson River is sitting sideways after springing a leak.

The U.S. Coast Guard tells the Times Herald-Record of Middletown that The Herbert H. Lehman, which was decommissioned in 2007, apparently sprung a leak Friday while docked in Newburgh. It is resting on the river bottom in shallow water.
