Re: Planning a trip up the East River, Timing?
interesting that you bring this up. When I do this route I always leave from Highlands, NJ. I time it so I am at the VN Bridge one hour before low at the Battery.
slack at the narrows.. is two hours after low at the battery..so your timing seems a bit early to me... I do think that if you hit the narrows at slack and hit the battery 3 hours after low, you'd enjoy a nicer push....but sometimes you gotta go, when you gotta go.
