BTW Liberty Landing ain't New York. But 79th Street is :)
I hate the 79th street boat basin. Ratsy, nasty, rundown, overpriced.
The staff are all a-holes and most of the mooring cleats are barely screwed in.
I have been there 5 times. :puke

I still think it's an experience everyone should have once. To dinghy in to Manhattan is surreal. Nevertheless, this is all true. Sort of how you learn to harden up survive in NYC (my old home town) :)
If we do it again we will most likely dinghy up to the north a bit, land on the rocks, and chain up the boat, rather then spend $25 to get off at a dock. We did however go into NYC by taxi.
This one stop alone is enough to show you should have a very good dinghy, that can take abuse.
