VFR flight from btv flying west nj VOR from btv-cambridge-alb-sparta-solberg VOR. West of nyc TCA, 195 degree right to flying west airport nj. In contact with nyc TCA, mc guire approach control and a handoff to phl approach control. Reported trenton to phl approach control. Did not request entry into TCA. Was in radio contact and squawking code assigned by ATC at phl approach. Descending into burlington, nj area from 6000' to approximately 2500' for entry to flying west nj airport. ATC advised I was in TCA east of delaware river at or near beverly, nj. Immediately descended to 2500' and vectors to flying west were accepted. Cleared TCA as quickly as possible. Landed flying west. More attention was needed to prevent this occurrence. Turbulence and winds contributors to higher ground speed than was planned.
