You need to check the addendums on the ACA map site.  All kinds of changes get posted so you may  not need to get new maps

You could head towards Bear Mountain and take RT9A down and cross over the George Washington Bridge (tappan zee is a no no) and downteh Hudson River greenway to into Manhattan.

Cross over theHudson on the new bridge, head towards Rt 22 to follow intothe Bronx, or
check out the Westchester county sites for the Puntnam, North/South Trails into the Bronx.
  If you take rt 22, you could hook into the Bronx River paths into Yonkers and take the Subway into the city.

If you plan on coming eastward towards Brewster, write off list and send me a note off list so I can send you some maps/cues

Try the site (Rails to Trails) for assist and google maps.  Conn DOT has a map ( may be out of print, put you can get the map online) for free.

Any way you can use the Erie Canal route to Rt 9 south to the bridge over the Hudson into ct
