Ryan, there are a number of boat clubs up near New Rochelle (you'd have to go up the East River and into LISound) that are sheltered by Davenport Neck, that are dead calm in 60+ knots. Of course if the water surges 15-20', as it can even in a northeaster, you've still got to make sure you don't come ashore. If the Neptune Boat Club is still was run by a fairly strict fellow named Tom. Straightforward, reliable, competitive operation.

You will need the charts to get in (rocks) and if you draw more than six feet you'll want to go in carefully, but it is nicely sheltered.
