Earlier Wednesday morning, Thunberg tweeted that her crew had anchored off Coney Island and was clearing customs. She has spent 14 days on the Malizia II, a 60-foot yacht outfitted with solar panels and underwater turbines, used to generate electricity which allows Thunberg to make a zero-carbon trans-Atlantic journey.

Day 13. Rough seas south of Nova Scotia. But conditions closer to New York will be slower than predicted and weather update suggests Wednesday arrival – an updated ETA will come as we near the coast. pic.twitter.com/IY6L9InSnp

Welcome to New York, @gretathunberg!
The determination and perseverance shown during your journey should embolden all of us taking part in next month's #ClimateAction Summit.
We must deliver on the demands of people around the world and address the global climate crisis. pic.twitter.com/dGUZr9fFQM
