Bait caster reels.

I am right-handed but have been using a left-hand baitcasting reel. A buddy suggested it, noting that after the cast you switch hands to reel the bait in. With the crank on the left side of the reel you simply wait for the bait/to fall to the desired depth and begin your retrieve. Are there any others who do this?

You can get bait casters left and right hand retrieve

I’m a total convert to bait casters & 7’6” one piece rods since a visit to “Capital fishing tackle shop “ 132 W, 36th Street N.Y. in 2001, They took me out to a river to try before I bought the gear, a true experience luring for Bass, talk about great customer service, with much Anglo American relations (beer & BBQ) and a lasting friendship, still see the guys when there👍👍

I've never fished the Wall kill but I drive past it on my way to my upstate cabin. I've fished Wawayanda many times, a great lake for trout, bass and pike.
Never fished Central Park though.
