Best Route from Mahattan to LI Sound
I apologize in advance if this post is in the wrong section.
Can someone recommend the best route from the downtown (west side) of Manhattan to Lon Island Sound?
I am considering acquiring a Catalina 27 or something similar to keep in the Hudson and do occasional weekend trips out to the sound.
I have heard the East River is very dangerous and the route around the northern end of Manhattan seems very long.
What is the best ways to get there? At what tide is it smartest to leave?
