Re: Best Route from Mahattan to LI Sound

There are just too many bridges over the Harlem River for a sailboat to make this route practical - unless you want to drop your mast!
Like everyone else has said, get the Eldridge Tide & Pilot Manual: http://www.amazon.com/Eldridge-Tide-Pilot-Book-2012/dp/1883465184Study it, read the text (what little text there is) as it is very enlightening. Study the current diagrams for the East River and figure it out for yourself. That is half of the fun/challenge.
Mostly, enjoy it as it is a fun trip.
