Hi Caleb,

I was actually advocating for the NYC area. I was using it as an example to contrast it with Philadelphia. I think the NYC area has a lot of nice marinas from the Hudson to Sandy Hook and western Long Island Sound.

NY Harbor may also have been slighted, not that I particularly care. In NY Harbor there is Liberty Landing Marina which I have never hear anyone complain about the amenities (prices, yes). Almost anything around NYC or Philly will be $$$$.
NY Harbor is not really my cup of tea because of boat traffic, currents and lack of natural setting which is why we keep our boat up by the Tappan Zee where it is naturally scenic and there is a lot more river where you can sail.
Sandy Hook has at least 1 club and there is even the Raritan Yacht Club. You might be surprised when you start looking.
Happy hunting!
There isn't a device on this world that can measure the indifference I have for that statement.
