Are you talking about a mooring for next week, next month, or next season?
The Hudson gets chunks of ice the size of doublewides sliding downriver in the Winter. If you're in a spot protected from those, you can still get dinged by smaller pieces, or frozen in. A marina with slips that have air bubblers or mechanical ice inhibitors would be needed over the winter.
For a summer mooring, most of the more reasonably priced places will be on the New Jersey shore until you get up as far as Tarrytown or Nyack.
