Pickup along the East River

I'll be sailing down from Long Island past Manhattan via the East River. I'm planning on picking up a passenger from Manhattan but I can't seem to find any marinas along the way. There is one called the NY Skyports Marina that seems to be closed to ferries or super yachts. While a fueling station would be nice, I'm really just looking for any pier or wharf where I pull alongside and have the guest jump aboard! My only other alternative is to swing around the tip and go to the North Cove Marina on the Hudson River side. I thought there might be a spot near the South Street Seaport but it looks like a restricted area these days.
