Setting the trap

Sam Powell, 34, prepares to drop his trap into the Hudson River off the West Harlem Piers. The trap will open when it hits the riverbed. Crabbers then pull up the rope to close the sides of the cage and trap the crabs. The process often results in empty cages that can be a bit trying for the impatient.
