Just to play a devils advocate...

If you bought land on either side of the Hudson, you couldn't put a cable across it and say "No Trespassing- Private Property".

I know the waterway is a lot smaller, but if it is legitimately navigable... you'd think the same principles should apply even if they've owned the property for a long time.

Either way, I'll likely never paddle these waters and i don't even live in NY but fundamentally i don't think people should own water.

There's a similar battle in Ontario where property owners on Georgian Bay try to limit public access and a war has ensued.
