This is always a great stopping place to stay the night before traversing the East River. The Launch Service is top notch and there's plenty of amenities within close walking distance. We stop here a few times every year. I only wish their Club Bar was opened more often.

Super friendly staff and launch captains. Parking for our rental car. Trash dumpsters ashore, water fill on the docks. Nice quiet town with tons of sailing history. Another spot we will be back to!

Great employees, easy mooring field to navigate. Learned how strong the mooring balls were, as sustained winds of 25-35 knots whipped through for about 18 hours, turning the field into a rollicking wave pool.

Picked up a mooring for the night. The mooring line was in excellent condition. Launch service from 8am -8pm, and we ad a nice meal at the Yacht Club.

Friendly, competent Yacht Club reasonable mooring fees that close to NYC. Nice restaurant on weekends, walking distance to great restaurants on island. Transportation to NYC by bus then subway.

It's been a great stay. Good protection from bad nor'easter. Nice town and all the launch drivers are terrific. We've extended our stay several times.

The facility location and the people are all wonderful.

by Jay P. - Verified user on Aug 10, 2023
I wish I had known that their moorings are totally unprotected. I spent a horrible sleepless night being violently tossed around. I would have gone elsewhere if I had known. I also would have left but I got there as it got dark and it was too late. I would avoid this place if the wind is coming from any southerly or westerly direction.

Easy access. Convenient to stores and restaurants.

It was a good place to stop to prepared for New York. It was a bumpy night but otherwise great! Spelling of my last name is Crowson. I see there is a place to enter for do I get those?
