About New York & Long Island
Categories: About/General Information
New York City (NYC) and Long Island offer two completely alternative settings. Several marinas in NYC - MarineMax Manhattan / Chelsea Piers, IGY North Cove Marina, Newport Yacht Club IGY and Liberty Landing (new location at Pier 25 NYC and across the Bay in New Jersey) - offer the city lights, with easy access to shopping, the theater district, museums and a huge number of restaurants. NYC offers unlimited possibilities for activities and entertainment all with easy access. The marinas are very well appointed, and Liberty Landing NYC, centrally located at Pier 25 a few blocks from Manhattan and downtown NYC, has lovely walkways and greenery that make you feel like you are not within the city limits. MarineMax / Chelsea Piers - located on the Hudson River - is known as New York’s ‘playground’ with a full sports facility on the premises, where you can drive golf balls off the tip of a Hudson River Pier, play ice hockey, unwind at the health spa, or be more adventurous and go rock climbing - all in an indoor setting! Across the Hudson River is Liberty Landing - located at Liberty State Park – where one can see the awe-inspiring New York City skyline and the Big Apple - as very few have, from the water. The marina has more than 600 slips and can handle boats as large as 200 feet. Walking and jogging paths surround the facility, and the Liberty Science and Nature Centers are also within the park. This marina also offers views of the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island and the city lights, with ferries running back and forth across the Hudson River for easy access to the city with a new location at Liberty Landing NYC at Pier 25.
Long Island has a unique location because it is still considered a major suburb of New York and juts out of the New York harbor, being 118 miles (190 km) long and approx. 12-23 miles wide... but is much quieter, with more of a country setting. A famous region, known as the Hamptons, is where the up-market clientele reside in their lovely mansions, with Superyachts often frequenting the harbors. Sag Harbor - nestled on the bay in the heart of the Hamptons - has for centuries (since its time as a whaling port) welcomed sailors and their guests; and the Sag Harbor Yacht Club is also very accommodating to visiting yachts. This haven for the ‘rich and famous’ offers great shopping, sensational scenery, and a variety of ethnic and seafood restaurants that provide some of the best seafood in the country. Long Island is also famous for its wine country, and there are over 25 vineyards in the North Fork alone. This is the largest island in the continental US, and it has many anchorages and Superyacht facilities, along with the full shoreside support one might hope for, whilst cruising New York and the Sounds.
