Dinghy Classes in New York City Area

Hi everyone. I'm new to sailing, and hoping to get started this spring / summer in the New York Area. I took a single introductory lesson in Seattle on Lake Washington a couple of years ago, and had a blast. I'm leaning toward dinghies rather than keel boats because I really like the idea of being able to take a boat out alone without too much hassle.

Unfortunately, I really am not sure where to start with regards to finding a place to learn and preferably continue to sail in the area. Where are good spots to sail smaller boats? And any suggestions on schools offering dinghy classes?

(I'm also open to hearing about reasons why I should instead go for keel boats instead.)

Thanks!

Matthew
