Northport Long Island
Northport Long Island tries pretty hard. Their town dock is free during the day. You can tie up, walk to the laundry, hardware, drugs close by, wash the boat and fill water tanks. The only problem is the grocery store is about 1 mile up a big hill. We walked our bikes up most of it. At least coming back loaded up is down hill.
The anchorage is at least a half mile out past the giant mooring field and is exposed to north winds and weekend boat wakes.
