The tide at Battery Park is now approaching 8 feet above mean lower low water. The astronomical tide right now should be about 1 foot above mean lower low water, which means that the tidal level at the Battery at the south end of Manhattan is now 7 feet above normal and climbing as we head toward high tide just after 8 p.m. EDT tonight.
Here is a good graphic from NOAA of the water rise.
Winds will become more southeasterly in the New York area as the center moves inland, pushing more water into New York Harbor.
Many tidal stations can be seen on this site.
