Tide Conversion Charts for the New York Bight and Surrounding Areas

Tide Conversion Charts used to be a staple in the newspapers.  The fishing section of the daily newspaper would show the tides for a well-known place and then list a conversion chart for other nearby places.   It is an old-school item that you used to find tucked away in every tackle box.   It is included for nostalgic reasons and shows what anglers had to do before the Internet.   To find high or low water at listed points, you add or subtract from SANDY HOOK, NJ times
