Is the Hudson River (NYC area, not up by Albany) allowed to be boated on, or is it only for international trade/staten island ferry/tourist boats to statue of liberty/ etc.?

obviously its too cold right now, but my question is geared towards the summer.

Is the Hudson River (NYC area, not up by Albany) allowed to be boated on, or is it only for international trade/staten island ferry/tourist boats to statue of liberty/ etc.?

Yes, any type of recreational boating is allowed on the Hudson River in NYC.
However, due to post 911 security precautions there is a requirement that you must (no sure about the particulars) keep a good distance from piers and places like the Statue of liberty, ect.

Anone know more about the Coast Guard regulations for keeping clear of the piers? Please Chime In :confused:
