Question Living Aboard in NY 2...

Just wondering if you liveaboards in the Big Apple can help me out....
My job has moved me from Chicago to Long Island, NY. So....with the cost of rent in NY being as high as it is, I was considering living aboard my Cal 27. Its not ideal nor a great setup for a liveaboard, but it can definately be done. My question is, once I get it to NY what challenges will I be facing? Friends of mine tell me of a luxury tax that I need to pay, extremely high marina fees, etc. Also, I hear some marinas allow liveaboards all year long. Does anyone know if they have showers and bathrooms available during the winter? How is payment done? Month by month or do you need to pay all up front.
What marinas should I contact?
