Very warm and inviting. Members treated us like we were home. Highly Recommend this place.
Nice club with friendly staff. Very convenient for East River passage. Dockmaster Joe very helpful.
A bit bumpy with a strong SW breeze but nice people. Would stay again. Great location if you are planning a run through Hell Gate the next day.
Not good, unprotected and a few mooring balls did not have lines to hook too!
good value, funky facility, great staff. By the way, they have a restaurant! Unfortunately we didn't find out until after standing in an extremely long line with extremely mediocre food, but we will try the YC next time. Yes, there will be a next time.
Easy in and out if you’re waiting to go through HellsGate
Gave us a mooring in close, away from “the edge”. Convenient to main road in City Island, bus stops, shops and restaurants.
