    Not sure about that one but, I drop my skis in Flushing at the world's fair marina (next to Shea Stadium).

    Its about a 10 minute ride to get to the East River.

    It's free too.

    yeah, the ramp is towads the end, there are two ramps side by side, just follow the signs for worlds fair mairna and head right once you see the marina.

    The best way I have found to get there is

    Long Island Expressway to College Point Blvd exit.
    Make right at light.
    Make left on Roosevelt Ave.
    Make right on Willets Point Blvd.
    Take to end, park is in front of you.
    Go all the way to the right once you enter.
    If the chain across the boat ramp just un-hook it, the lock doesn't work.
    If for some reason the gates are closed at the entrance, just go over the curb and on the grass to go around it. (this is what I have done anyway)

    worst case if you cant get in, go to the gas dock they have the keys. there are two ramps there. if you decide to drop them in keep me posted its 2 minutes from my marina and you have to pass me to get out of the bay,

    Thanks .
    This is very useful info. I was looking for an alternative route to get the east river(wanna see those waterfalls). The last time I went to the Liberty state park. It's always fun to ride with other people. I would like to do the trip around the island again.. this time in the reverse fashion.. I forget the name of the joint but you can eat at a small place by the Liberty landing Marina... It's Ski friendly too.. I come from the Middle east part of Long Island.. this would save me a Ski load of trouble and time to go this way.
    Thanks for the tip.

    TT,
    Yeah it was a hoot... I'm glad the guys took it easy on me. they were seasoned vets.. and i was the new kid on the block... I did not know what to expect, although the water heading toward the Verranzano was like a mine field..
    I'm going to do this again before the summer's end. I want to get pictures going up the East side river up into the harlem River.. The backside of the UN,Columbia,Yankee stadium... I would also like to see the Water falls under the Brooklyn Bridge too.
    Thanks for the reply.
