    Hi Folks,

    My buddy and I are going to fly the Hudson corridor on Monday. We'll come from the South, up through the corridor, stop to eat, switch seats, then fly back.

    The closest airport after exiting the corridor appears to be KHPN (Westchester), which has restaurants. Any thing to note at that airport and the restaurants? Looks like they have some fees.

    Also, any other airports around there you'd recommend instead?

    I searched through the forum but only found some notes on how to fly the corridor.

    Thanks for your help. Looking forward to the trip!

    Monday is tough, lots of restaurants are closed then. Otherwise I'd suggest CAVU restaurant at Kobelt (N45), or the airport cafe at Sky Acres (44N).

    I’m actually going to do this today with my boys for fun if air is smooth.
    Question I have is do the skyline or just Hudson corridor VFR?? Going to Blairstown for breakfast then going to pass through the Corridor from the south to north then head home

    We're going to do the Hudson corridor VFR...I would think it's easier get lower and drop down to circle the Statue of Liberty. Have a great flight!

    The new restaurant at KPOU, Paula’s Runway Cafe should be open.

    The restaurant at 44N is only open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Very good, though. Paula's at KPOU is 7 days a week.

    Both the Sunset Grill (N07, Lincoln Park) and the Smoke Shack Barbecue and Burger cafe at Greenwood Lake airport (4N1) are a touch closer than Paula's, Danbury, and Oxford, but are closed Monday.

    If you choose to fly the Skyline route then on the first pass north up the Hudson ask for a Central Park transition across Manhattan to the East River. Cross east at the 79th Street boat basis (at the southern end of the lake in the Park). Fly down the East River past the United Nations and Brooklyn, Manhattan, and 59th Street bridges and around the Battery back up the Hudson to the North.
