WHAT: Second Annual NYC Sea Paddle to benefit autism awareness WHEN: Monday, August 18th WHERE: Hudson River starting at Liberty Landing Marina in Jersey City, NJ

The staging for the event will take place at Liberty Landing Marina in Jersey City, NJ at 7:00am. To get there by ferry from New York City, just north of North Cove Marina, in Manhattan, there is a large, covered ferry dock. You can take a Yellow Water Taxi from this dock directly to Liberty Landing Marina.

At approximately 8:45 am, the boats will move to an area just off the South Street Seaport, where the paddlers will enter the water, providing a great vantage point for spectators. Then the group will proceed up the East River, into the Harlem River and down the Hudson.

There will be many viewing points along the Hudson from roughly 12:00pm onwards as they progress southbound. The paddle concludes between 2:30 and 3:30pm at North Cove Marina at the World Financial Center.
