The East River is a tidal strait, not a real river, which connects on both ends to the Atlantic Ocean. As such, East River's tidal currents change directions up to four times a day, flowing north and then turning around and pushing south toward the ocean. With the tide rising the water flows north and with the tide subsiding, the water flows south. This pattern is due to the fact that the water volume, Upper New York Bay, south of the narrowest point of the strait spreads more rapidly toward the Atlantic Ocean than the area north to the narrowest point of the strait, on Long Island Sound. The tide reversal times change with the position of the moon and the sun, so there are no fixed times for the direction changes.
