Make sure when you leave the Sandy Hook area its a nice weather day, you are in for an unbelievable experience. This is a day filled with emotion as you pass the Lady Liberty and enter NYC, Make sure you have your camera battery fully charged. It will take you about 1 hour 20 mins to get to the NYC Harbour and about the same amount of time to travel under each of the 3 bridges. There is a stunning change in the scenery after you travel under the George Washington Bridge.
Tappan Zee Bridge
The Palisades on the western bank after the George Washington Bridge. After you round this bend it will open up to the widest point of the hudson 2 miles across it will be very uncomfortable if its windy.
We are now at Half Moon Bay Marina and very happy to be tied to a dock as it was very windy. Once we rounded the bend at the Palisades the 15-20 kts winds hit 25-30 once in the middle.
It is very beautiful here its a 1/4 mile to town and a bit less to the train station where you can take a ride into NYC for the day $12 per person and 40 min ride.
