If you are going to Liberty Landing or The Harlem Yacht club. You might consider coming out to my town Huntington. It is about a 3 1/2 hour sail from city island. It is on the north shore of Long Island. We have many moorings, and slips are also available for guests. The harbor is a great hurricane hole with deep water. The traffic in the city and surrounding area causes a lot of rocking of the boats Huntington is quite quiet and peaceful.
I am a member at the yacht club and you would have no problem having a spot for your boat. Huntington is one hour by train from Manhattan. It is a lovely area wooded with rolling hills just 35 miles from Manhattan. The Great Gatsby was written about Huntington and the surrounding area. There are many marine services in the harbor , sailmakers , engine repair, West Marine, electricians and electronic people. Also a number of boat yards that are very well equipped. All a 5 minute dinghy ride from the club.

We sailed out of there for 20 years. A quick Google search will bring up several, like Liberty Landing, Liberty Harbor (cheaper), Newport Harbor, Lincoln Harbor, Port Imperial (a bit mafia but just fine) etc. For cheaper head up to our old club on City Island, the Harlem Yacht Club and go on a mooring for $25 a night (negotiable for longer stays) and an easy bus/train ride to NYC and NJ or take a slip at Huguenot YC. Or, if you want more south in NJ try Lockwood Boat Works in South Amboy. For much more detail and suggestions, check out Active Captain - a superb crowd sourced compendium. Even has great free anchorages.
As we finish getting Harmonie made into our boat, we will be heading north before the end of the month. I had been hoping to spend some time in the New Jersey area where I have family. I expected a challenge finding a marina with available transient slips that had depth for our keel and bridge clearance for our mast, so far I haven't had any luck.
