Glen Cove Inlet is a sliver of water located off Hempstead Harbor on the North Shore of Long Island. Glen Cove is eight miles southeast of New Rochelle and 12 miles south of Greenwich, CT. Inside the cove are four marinas (two with full service repairs), and two of these marinas make slips available to transient guests. Anchoring is not permitted here due to the narrow nature of the cove itself.
Use NOAA Chart 12366.
