Default Airplane in NYC is a Cirrus SR20

CNN is reporting that the pilot was a Yankee's pitcher: Lidle. He
apparently got his license only 7 months ago. Bragged about how safe his
plane was. I have a feeling this is similar to JFK junior's case of not
knowing one's limitations.

I talked with my aunt who also lives on the east side of Manhattan and she said
it's been a crappy day up there... in fact, while I was talking to her it
started raining.

CNN reports 8-mile visibility but low ceiling (1800') at the time of the
crash. (Most of CNN's coverage has been quite good; they're getting
commentary from their journalist Miles O'Brien, who's a pilot. They also
found a pilot eyewitness on the ground who provided a cogent account.)

The hourly METARS for 1800 and 1900Z for the area airports put things
at 017OVC and 7 Miles. It had been poorer (008OVC and 2 1/2 RA).

An old NYT article:

NYC weather looks pretty crappy today.

What makes you say so? The crash site is abeam FDR Island, adjacent to part
of the East River VFR corridor. (Or do you just mean that he was slightly
inland at the moment of the crash?) And is it known yet if he might have had
a Class B clearance?

Isn't the restricted floor in the area ~1500 feet?

1500 foot floor, 1800 foot cieling... VFR into IMC anyone?

A pilot correspondent at CNN said that (can't remember his name).

No. Class E in the corridor has a *ceiling* of 1100-1500 feet, not a floor.
