which is better newport marina or liberty landing nj

Hi, We am planning on living on a 33 ft cruiser. We plan on moving to the marina in November. We would love to hear from people who are currently living on their boats at these marinas. What are the pros and cons. I see that Newport is 20 dollars cheaper then Liberty a foot. I think Liberty may be nicer but my boyfriend feels Newport is the better choice? Please ANY current comments especially since Sandy would be great! Thanks!!!

I've never lived aboard but have lived at Newport in one of the high-rises. If you work in the city (especially Wall Street area), Newport's a much easier commute.

One thing I have noticed about Newport whenever I have been by there, doesn't look like they put sailboats in adjacent slips. I think that's so their rigs don't get caught on each other when the are rolling back and forth because of the ferry wakes.

Water on the Morris Canal where LLM is located seems to be a lot more chill, downside is that you are very isolated. Good luck!
