Hmm. The escape velocity is the velocity at the surface (in this case the EH) at which you have suficient energy to escape (just) to infinity. Consequently, if you start from infinity and just fall under the gravity of the object, you will achieve this velocity at this surface. In practice we are talking about just fairly large distances; it is just that infinity makes the calculations a bit easier, but the principle is the same. As I said before, if somehow you could use retro rockets to slow yourself down this would not apply, but you would still have a huge velocity. In an oblique entry you would probably end up in a decaying orbit into the BH. I am unsure how the universe would look in this case. Well, I am unsure in every case actually.
