If you have stayed anywhere else on the Hudson, then you know how uncomfortable it can be with the waves and wakes. At Liberty, it was flat calm in the marina. The facilities are beautiful. Great ships store as well. Had a fireworks display from the park next door and a view of the Statue of Liberty. A water taxi leaves every hour from the marina and takes you right to NYC near the 911 Memorial. $7 a person!!! Marina personnel were very helpful with fueling and docking etc. Great place!!
