No shore is any guarantee.
Just keep out of the way of the bigger guys out there.
Travel with the current which you can find in the Eldridge Tide & Pilot manual. Keep vhf radio on 16/13/11.
The UN Building is something to keep your distance from.
Go down the west side of of Roosevelt Island.
Keep a vigilant lookout.
Consider keeping the main sail only up as it may catch some favorable wind.
Make sure your engine is dependable.

If you catch the current right you can be in NY Harbor in < 2 hours from passing under the Throgg's Neck Bridge.
