On the NY side, I know about the marina at Chelsea Piers (Surfside 3?) and North Cove, but these are likely to be extremely expensive.
.com and look up and down the map for marinas.
Anyway, back to the two I'm more familiar with. Lincoln Harbor is a bit rolly, even with that new sea wall of theirs. There is 1st-come-1st-serve covered parking, and a big parking lot just outside the building. NY Waterway ferry
is nearby, as is a Ruth Chris Steakhouse. A very short ride to lots of amenities in Edgewater & Hoboken.
Liberty Landing, I think, has some sort of ferry service
to World Financial. But, just outside of the area, is a very rough neighborhood (i.e. do not walk there.) The marina is not rolly; well protected in Morris Canal.
speedo is right about 79th st allowing liveaboards, as I remember the "boat squatter" city that was there. most of these boats have been forced out. spaces are very hard to come by there, and you're not going anywhere at low tide. the marina is badly in need of dredging.
