NEW YORK, NEW YORK
06 October 2010 | New York
We stayed 2 nights at the Poughkeepsie Yacht Club which is actually about 8-9 miles north of the city of Poughkeepsie. Dean, Christ, Bill and I took a taxi to Poughkeepsie then the train into Manhattan. We had a good time walking around and seeing the sights.
Stayed one night at the Haverstraw Marina. Left early the next morning to continue down the Hudson River.
We are currently at the Lincoln Harbor Yacht Club in Hoboken, NJ, right across the Hudson River from Manhattan. Great night view of the city, including the Empire State Building. Most expensive marina so far - $118 for one night. Made really good time today from Haverstraw during high tide, we actually topped out at almost 10 knots, our normal top speed is around 6.5 knots. We walked around Hoboken and had dinner at a Mexican restaurant. Hoboken is actually quite nice, with lots of little restaurants, shops and nicely renovated buildings. Must be the place for all the young families to live as we saw lots of children in strollers being pushed around.
Will decide in the morning (weather permitting) if we will go to Atlantic Highland in Sandy Hook Bay, NJ to wait for a weather window to go offshore down the east coast. Hopefully we will be able to go since we can't afford too many nights at this price.
