On the New York City side of the Hudson River, the races will be viewable as far south as Pier A and as far north as Pier 25, both on Manhattan’s West Side.
On the New Jersey side, the races can be seen from Liberty State Park up to the Jersey City waterfront.
Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty are also good viewing points, according to Mr. Schiller. There will also be several large screens along the waterfront, including a few in parks yet to be determined.
Of course, racegoers can watch from their own boats on the Hudson River. For more details and to register, visit americascup.com. Hundreds of boats have already registered and there is no fee to do so.
