An NYPD Harbor Patrol boat made a grisly discovery early this morning between the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges.
The Harbor Patrol crew pulled the body of what appeared to be an Asian man from the East River near South Street and Catherine Slip.
The body was taken to Pier 16 before being transported to the Medical Examiners office.
The man's identity and cause of the death will be released after an autopsy.
