This was our first time going here and when I hailed them on Ch. 72 they gave perfect directions though it took a couple of calls due to people stepping on our conversation. Frank was standing by to guide us in asking if I'd prefer bow in or stern in. He efficiently tied us up and I did not have to step off the boat to connect anything. The staff was courteous and friendly. When ever staff went by they said good morning, afternoon or evening. Was concerned about access to D dock, which is the transient dock but was reassured by the General Manager that our boat was quite safe and explained all the security that was in place. We particularly liked that the boats to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty were conveniently located within a short walk from the marina. There is also a ferry that runs from there to within a few blocks walk of the World Trade Center for a reasonable price. There are two restaurants there as well. We visited Liberty Park and sat at the bar and had a couple of drinks and some sushi. The sushi was fantastic and the bartenders were awesome. We didn't get to use all the amenities the marina had to offer but we will on our next visit.
