Pam - Don't know your plans, but if 79th St is getting to you, you might look at Liberty Landing Marina across the Hudson in Jersey City and at the latitude of the World Financial Center in lower Manhattan. We stay there each year from March - June and Sept to Nov/Dec. The view of Manhattan is terrific, there is a 5 minute ferry ride that leaves every 1/2 hour AND as the marina is on a creek, there is almost no harbor surge. We tried other places up and down the Hudson but the surge ranged from uncomfortable to dangerous. FYI. Oh yeah - they have a pump out boat and a facility at the fuel dock.
