The body of a 56 year old Long Island man was recovered in the Housatonic River shortly before 8 Saturday evening.  Environmental Conservation Police from the State Department of Energy and Environmental Protection and local search and rescue crews began searching for the man about 5 p.m. when he tipped over while kayaking storm-swollen waters with two other men near the covered bridge in Cornwall .  The others made it to shore.
