    You don't have to climb breakneck to get to a place to hang. This site may be helpful though..

    River view and small but some small wood nooks there.
    Used to live by John Jay for years.

    I looked that up. Looks like a great place to get arrested for hanging overnight!

    I'm looking for the places that you pay to camp/hang, etc. Tough to do anywhere near in or really close to the city.

    However..... it would be an interesting story to see if I could wear a small pack and hide out in Central Park, or elsewhere (John Jay), for two nights.

    I suspect that if I find a "secret spot" then others be there as well.

    I did find a source for "NYC Campers" but most of them were like you mentioned or a combination of taking a train out then a greyhound or other bus thing.

    When you mentioned "Highlands" I thought you meant New Jersey. I have family across the Lower Bay in Highlands near Sandy Hook but that's also pretty far away for someone who wants to use public transportation.
    Why not NJ? You can just take the ferry from the Highlands into NY. Or you can stay at Cheesequake State Park and catch a train from Aberdeen in to the City

    I'm thinking the ferry may not run at the wee drunken hours. And of course I may be wrong. And the train, don't know that schedule. Still much to learn.
