"Hooking" your Boat in NYC

hey guys i think thats a right title to put, but anyways i am about to buy my first boat finally since i been in this site for years. but i currently live in nyc and wanted to know from those who lives here or have been here on where i should anchor my boat without having to pay fees? i was looking into an inlet between queens and brooklyn, also in front of a schools i am going to kingsborough college in sheephead bay.

also i wanted to know how mooring works, like lets say if i wanted to hop out the boat for a few minutes to get something to eat. anywhere i can anchor or moor the boat for this? any sites, maps or links can help thanks

Check out Activecaptain.com to identify anchorages and moorings in your area. The site also provides local knowledge from boaters in the area. Then go down and visit the marinas in the area to get more detailed information.

Good luck.

Sometimes waterfront restaurants have piers where customers can arrive by boat. If you can get a kayak, rowboat, or other small dinghy, that will give you lots of options for getting between your boat and shore without having to pay for a marina slip.
