liveaboard marinas in the NYC area


Hello! I'm new to the sailnet community. I joined so I could ask if anyone knows any marinas in the New York City area that allow liveaboards. The only one I found that actually allows them is much more of a power boat marina on the Hudson where the current is rather quick. I'm interested in the Long Island Sound area where there is some sailing to be done.

My concern is the legality of liveaboards in the NY area. I don't know if they are cracking down on it or if it is OK. Some people have told me that they basically shut down living aboard on the south side of Long Island. I have no way to confirm that, so I'm asking for info here. I don't want to buy the boat, get the slip, etc... and end up 'homeless' due to some stupid rule change.

Any info would be appreciated.
