How to track Port New York?

The vessel Elektra has finally docked in Port New York, but I can't seem to find specific unloading information on it. I've tried the port authority site and various other sites that show its arrival, but no data on intended unloading date.

Also, if my dealer is less than 20 miles away or so from the port how long do you think the ETA from port to dealer is?

Unless you have a friend at or near the VDC, you will not know for sure it was unloaded until your ship departs. Determining the time it takes to get through the VDC is a crapshoot - lots of variables and also the luck of the draw. It seems on the west coast things are a little jammed up here - too many cars and not enough staff to check them or trucks to transport them. Once it actually gets on a truck it's just driving time (unless it has a bunch of other stops).

Update please, how long did it take after the ship docked??!! I am in the same situation that you were.
