A lot of clubs and marinas informally will wink and nod if you say "Well, I'm going through a divorce and may be staying on the boat a lot" but if you want to live aboard, and know that you won't be asked to leave "Now" one day...there are very few who will sanction it full time. And very few who run launch service outside of the summer season. Sneaking in quietly can work, but in NYC waters you've also got one other problem: No working pumpout stations. Yeah, they're listed, they're all either just closed, out of order, or listed incorrectly. Little problems like that. (OK, there's one up in Bayside, in the summer only, and one about two hours "inland" from Sheepshead Bay up one of the creeks. Good luck.)
