Newsday reports that Cuomo and Joel arrived about 10 a.m. by boat at Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park.

They walked ashore bearing black garbage bags that they filled during the event.

Joel said he has first hand experience seeing what kind of garbage people throw in the bay because he sees it washing up on his property. Cuomo, a Democrat, is seeking re-election.
