I left early in the morning and headed around past Perth Amboy and up the west side of Staten Island. Lots of industry.
Then into the Lower Harbor, past the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, and up the Hudson. I wasn’t really tempted to venture into the East River. I had a fair current as well so just kept on.
The Tappan Zee Bridge was pretty cool. They built a new one beside the old and were in the process of demolishing/dismantling the original
Then on up the river
It was starting to rain as I stopped for the day near Peekskill. Right next to the nuclear power plant, in a little inlet off the river, here. About 5 feet of water, snug and protected.
