Re: Sailing the Hudson River NY

Actually there's quite a bit of crossing that goes on around lower Manhattan. Not so much further North as Minne says where it's more north and south. The commuter ferries and the Statue/Ellis island ferries, and other tour boats zig-zag across all day long around lower manhattan from about Weehawken down. Still, it's not an issue. They are big enough to see and if you know where they're headed ( the terminals) you can keep clear. What I find around lower manhattan is that while watching and dodging the ferry traffic you can easily forget to look for the tug and barge that is slowly lumbering up or down the channel.
