Re: Planning a trip up the East River, Timing?
I would look at the Tidal Current Tables as one is looking at the horizontal movement of water. So if you hit the Battery at 11:15, effectively it will not make a big difference. The Tidal Current Tables are what is more important.
Yam, Here's an illustration of the east river @ low water at the battery.
and 1 hour after low water:
2 hours after:
Notice which way the arrows point at two hours. That's why the typical recommendation ( not just mine) is to arrive 2 hours after low water.
