Default Manhattan Hudson River "Pier" parks

Planning on taking a trip up the hudson and I see a bunch of piers that are "parks" and have some type of dock. For example, Pier 62 which has a skate park, carousel, etc. Some piers have cafe's.
Can you just pull in and dock for a small amount of time? I'm only talking 15, maybe 30 min tops.

I'm only in 26' bow rider.

Look at sat image, its clear that dock has nothing to do with the park.

Here is is who owns it: https://www.chelseapiers.com/also-at-the-piers/marina/

There are some marinas that allow touch and go or short-term docking, not for free though, check out the activecaptain link above

A word of caution, be careful with a bow rider, those waters and waters leading to the city can get a bit crazy.

Thanks for the info.

I was up there mid summer, I know what you mean about crazy. Not only did I need to pay attention to other boats/ferries, I needed to keep an eye on the water itself for any rouge oversized wakes/swells....not that I ran in to any ;-) There were also a lot of small (3-4 people) sized sail boats and that was a lot of fun to navigate around.
