No public marinas in either Hudson or Athens that I can recall. I suggest you contact Catskill Marina or Hopponose to see if they will still be accepting transients. October is the time of year they begin removing their docks for the winter. They are located across from one another on Catskill Creek.

CalebD will become famous soon enough
Tarrytown marina is right by the train station. Many of the eastern shore towns on the Hudson are convenient to their train stations from the river as the tracks often go right along the river.
In addition to October being the time of year they begin removing docks, it is also usually the time of year that the leaves start changing color. I would like to do a similar trip going only as far as Beacon; perhaps in mid-October or earlier.
Traveling up river with the tide is the way to go. You can be fighting a 2 knot current if you go against the tide.
Commercial traffic (tugs etc.) monitor vhf ch. 13 I believe.
"The Cruising Guide to the New England Coast" has a section devoted to the marinas on the Hudson.
Good luck, have fun and stay warm.
