Re: Pickup along the East River

Call Obama and ask him to arrange it so you can use the dock at the U.N. for your passenger pickup! Not! don't even pretend to make landing near the U.N. or you will have a CG escort in a hurry.

I'd forget about North Cove as well. Too small and well policed.

A better bet is less than 1 mile north of there on the Hudson. Just north of the Stuyvesant H.S. building is a small mooring field which is now operated by Liberty Landing marina, which is across the river. They have a new, fairly long dock that you could probably get away with a free "drop & go" transaction. This location is a few blocks west of the Chambers St. #1,2,3 subway station.
I have been dropped off at Chelsea Piers (23rd St.) from a sailboat before without being hassled.
Perhaps the safest bet would be Liberty Landing Marina which does have a fuel dock. Water taxis go there from around North Cove area.
