I'd point out, that if the waters are US navigable waters, they are likely not allowed to make them a "no anchoring zone". It would violate federal law IIRC.

Perhaps it has changed, I do not know.


Some other places to consider are the harbors on Shelter Island.
Also, this year we anchored one night in Northwest Harbor, east of the Cedar Island Lighthouse. No protection from the SW, but it was a calm day, so it was fine. Rowed ashore, walked the beach, checked out the lighthouse etc.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
