Re: RED HOOK BROOKLYN NY DOCKAGE

Back when I was a teenager I helped someone moving their sailboat from Great Kills harbor in Staten Island to some where up the East River. Long story short we made it past Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan Bridges. Around midnight we were motoring with no wind and an out going tide. The engine died and we were drifting downstream. We tied up to the Domino sugar company on the Brooklyn side. I think this was the Red Hook area Within minutes a watchman with a shotgun ran us off. Tried to explain to him it was an emergency but he wouldn't hear it. I have no idea how much things have changed as I live on the left coast now.

Re: RED HOOK BROOKLYN NY DOCKAGE

You can anchor right behind the Statue of Liberty or in the basin just west of the statue. Behind the statue is a great location, beautiful views but a little choppy until 8-9 pm when the ferry and tour boat traffic dies down. It's only two miles west of the Battery.


Free docks in NY? Don't know of any.

Re: RED HOOK BROOKLYN NY DOCKAGE

If you are heading in or out of NY Harbor you can also anchor west of Sandy Hook or in a little basin right next to Coney Island.

Re: RED HOOK BROOKLYN NY DOCKAGE

Knew some “straight edge” boat-bums who recounted that they spent summers for little or no money somewhere on the Brooklyn side in what sounded like an industrial/commercial area. I don’t know if it was up Newtown creek or further north opposite the south end of Roosevelt island, or even further up opposite Rikers island. It didn’t sound very nice, but it was free or close to it.

Re: RED HOOK BROOKLYN NY DOCKAGE

No access to shore but can anchor in a pinch about a mile south of Governors Is. In the Bay Ridge flats in about 10 to 15 ft of water. among the moored/anchored barges.
Mid lower bay on Staten island, protected Great Kills Harbor, talk to yatch club can get launch or dinghy to shore .
My marina about a mile east of Throggs Neck bridge, guest mooring, nc, launch but no services.
Another mile east, again free moorings, Manhasset bay, very protected and full services .

Re: RED HOOK BROOKLYN NY DOCKAGE

We anchored just past the 79th street yacht basin up the Hudson then used our dinghy to go to the city dock where they charged us $26.00 per day to use the dock and threw in washer and dryer rights.
Best deal in town..

Re: RED HOOK BROOKLYN NY DOCKAGE

How long can you stay in a given area there before TPTB tell you to move on?

Re: RED HOOK BROOKLYN NY DOCKAGE

Don't know. We stayed 4 days next to the statue of liberty (nice spot but the tour boats and ferries make it a cauldron during the day) before moving up river to the 79th anchorage.
We are going back in a week then up the Hudson to CIA (culinary institute of America) great place.

Enjoy

Re: RED HOOK BROOKLYN NY DOCKAGE

I have never been pushed to move-on in the ny / New England area..... seem more boater friendly than other places I read about. And we drop anchor for many days at a time.....
