Re: Planning a trip up the East River, Timing?
If you start up the East River when it is dead low at the Battery you will be working against the current all the way to Hells Gate. If you wait until 3 hours after low water at the Battery to start up the river you will have the current with you all the way up to Hells Gate. If you wait as long as 4 hours after low water at the Battery you still have 4 hours to make it through Hells Gate with a strong current pushing you all the way.
