Does anyone paddle Manhattan and land south of Pier 25? I am wondering if there are any non-water trail take-out's around Battery Park City.

Kayak Company. He should be able to answer your question in some detail.

I don't think there are any access points that you can use casually. In an emergency, I'm sure the North Cove mini-marina would take you in. Other than that, it's all seawall and ferry docks until you get around to South Street Seaport. Again, any of the ferry operators would help you in an emergency if they could.

We are trying to land as close to Washington Street as possible. We are paddling from the TZ bridge. Pier 25 is a 1.2 mile portage.

What's the cross street you're trying to get to?

is another option, but you'll need to make arrangements.

call Randy. There are precious few takeouts down that way. Once around the Battery, there is basically nothing.

We are trying to get as close to the southernmost part of Washington Street- essentially off Battery Park. I haven't paddled that stretch yet but noticed how squirrelly it is from shore.

Lyngo, do you know how to make arrangements for North Cove? That is much closer.
