Definitely sounds like port washington
And this thread will soon be merged with the new improved non-hijacked thread I started yesterday. There will be a clean up on isle one this weekend! Someone made a mess and the mods have promised to clean it up! Thanks all
Yes, Port Washington. Fixed it. Sorry, thought it was in there when I quoted the first post on it.

- Excellent location for waiting out tide turns for transiting Hell Gate to NYC's East River
+1 (this is my home port)

Lots of room to anchor out as well.

There is a lot of good info out there, but will there ever be the complete source of our coast for the visiting sailor? I don't think it's possible, but it's worth trying to improve.
This exact thought was what led me to develop my boat show seminar, Sailing South, First Timers' Guide to the ICW. After a few trips south, I'd figured it out and it was a lot easier trip. In Georgetown Bahamas, I got into a discussion with some others about what information they would have liked to have for their first ICW trip. That was revealing.
Sure enough, the information is all available, and easy to find. The real problem is that newbies don't know the questions to ask! That only comes from experience.
Still, Xort's idea here has given me an idea that I plan to include in my seminars, and I suspect several others have found this thread useful. I hope everyone continues to post the information Xort was looking for here.
[edit - good news, Xort has restarted this thread, under http://www.sailnet.com/forums/provis...ing-stops.html - see ya there!]

Re: east coast provisioning stops

it's The Great Book of Anchorages - and I have no commercial interest in the book, although I did review it favourably for SAIL.

Thanks for posting that. I have never heard of the Baier/Landry book. Will check it out.

These spots are often not near a grocery store, or a restaurant, or West Marine but simply a place to anchor for a night. Someone needs to compile a comprehensive, list of places to anchor for sailors who don't have local knowledge.

One sees a need and fulfills it; that's one of the basic tenets of capitalism. People use various sources of data to satisfy their needs or solve their problems; that's ingenuity. Some people just complain; that's counter-productive for everyone.
