Re: Best Route from Mahattan to LI Sound

Note also that the chart for the East River has a note to the effect that you cannot transit the west passage by Roosevelt Island when the UN General Assembly is in session (an anti-terrorism rule, I presume). So in a sailboat, make sure that isn't the case on your planned day, as the east passage is not useable by sailboats (low clearance fixed bridge from the Queens side to the island).
