World's Fair Marina...assuming they allow free entry to a pickup point.

But a spooky walk through a mile of industrial wasteland from the subway, and the stadium station is a local stop only except during rush hour. And the boat will probably lose close to two hours, getting in there and back out again to the main course.

I'd still buy the gallon of gas on the east river proper, save the two hour detour and the crew getting lost out there.

There's Worlds Fair Marina in Queens as well. It's very convenient by subway from Manhattan.

I'm thinking Liberty Landing or Newport Marina in Jersey City .. You can get a path train to Jersey City and the marina is right across the street. No Fuel in Newport though. So if you want an all in one stop Probably Liberty.

Depending on wind and tide, heading up from the Battery to Chelsea and then coming back down again could mean two or more hours lost picking up that crew. Still might be easier to buy a gallon of gas on the east river.

I have been dropped off at Chelsea Piers (23rd St.) from a sailboat before without being hassled..
I've been picked up here as well and while had to duck under a gate we hung out for 20-30 min and weren't bothered.

Another option might be the docks in Long Island City.

Call Obama and ask him to arrange it so you can use the dock at the U.N. for your passenger pickup! Not! don't even pretend to make landing near the U.N. or you will have a CG escort in a hurry.

I'd forget about North Cove as well. Too small and well policed.

Perhaps the safest bet would be Liberty Landing Marina which does have a fuel dock. Water taxis go there from around North Cove area.

Good luck on that. I'm sure it IS possible but at North Cove you may be charged a minimum docking fee even for a fast pickup. At South Street their policy was the same thing, you come alongside, you pay. You might have ot buy a gallon of gas at the east side marina to take your guest onboard. Or, aim for one of the seawalls with bullards on the east river and have your guest jump the fence.

Hopefully someone else knows a spot you really can use, but "public access" and NYC waterways are not often found together.
