I've never heard of "West Chester" NY.
There's Westchester, a rough part of Bronx County, a part of NYC, where the only mooring would be on the Bronx River. IIRC there's one rather industrial small boat yard behind a fuel oil company, one of the most, ah, unattractive places you'd ever take a boat.
