Been spending more time on the Hudson the last couple of years. Keep the boat up by Havestraw and play between the tapanzee and newburgh mainly. My family has a place down in Mantoloking so we do Barnaget bay as well.
Had an Active Thunder and moved to the dark side this year with the AMT. Come on up and join us if the tremors get to much and you need a fix.

We are going to be tagging along for this one.
I want a little more seat time before running in that kind of crowd.
How about you? When are you comming down?

Talking Good Vantage Point

Good vantage point to see the boats coming out from the Liberty Landing Marina is along the WaterFront Walk in Jersey City. You won't be able to tail gate but it is about the closest you'll see the boats without being in the Liberty Landing wet pits.

Take I-78 to the Jersey City/Grand St exit. Follow signs to Grand St. Take Grand St. all the way into JC. You'll see the water in front of you. There is a public lot on the right. Walk down to the southeast by the Provident Bank building. Good view next to the large clock (like in photo). Walking distance to many restaurants and pubs. Anyone wanting to take a PATH train can get off at EXCHANGE PLACE. It's right on the water also.

Just walked through the wet pits this afternoon. Bunch of boats and static displays already there.

I would imagine either somewhere along the Palisades Parkway north of the GW, take Ft Lee/Palisades exit off I-95 or one of the rest areas along the West Side Highway (Henry Hudson Pkway) in Manhatten. This site had some good info:
http://www.njpalisades.org/maps.htm
http://www.njpalisades.org/overlooks.htm#rlo
http://www.njpalisades.org/pip.htm

Marlin275 provided this info: This is the best spot near the Tappan Zee Bridge, 13 Sunset Cove, at the Washington Irving Boat Club Tarrytown, NY, 914 366 7889, East Shore. At the end of Greene Street past the entrance to the Tarrytown Railroad Station and located within the Washing-ton Irving Boat Club grounds, directly on the water, is this very nicely laid out restaurant facility. Featuring a newly renovated outdoor patio with cute out of the way dining or drinking areas, spectacular views, and a patio barbecue grill featuring hamburgers, hot dogs, grilled chicken, sausage & peppers. The patio grill is open seven days a week. You will find parking attendants present on weekends as the demand for parking far exceeds the capacity of the Washington Irving Boat Club parking area. (Cars are parked next door by the attendants.) Inside dining is elegant featuring Continental Cuisine with a Mediterranean flair and offers a selection of steak, chops, seafood, grilled fish, pastas and a wide assortment of daily specials. The large windows overlooking the patio and Hudson River paired with indoor air conditioning make for an enjoyable experience. To enter the Washington Irving Boat Club area by boat look for Red buoy #2 marking the channel to Tarrytown. Turn right at this buoy and go straight to the club located nearest the eastern corner of the Tappan Zee Bridge. There is guest docking for 14 vessels up to 34' in length.

I'll probably take exit 72a and go to Palisades park. I don't want to take the hour drive up to the TZ
