CULTURE: North Cove Marina (7.16.18)
One of the staples of the downtown scene is North Cove Marina. Whether it's taking out a boat, learning how to sail or admiring the yachts parked on the waterfront, we love seeing what's going on at North Cove.
To learn more about their offerings for all ages, we spoke with Virginia King, Marketing Coordinator, to find out how you can get involved in North Cove Marina...
Tell us about North Cove Marina.
North Cove Marina is an IGY Marina Destination located in Battery Park. We pride ourselves with being the best location for seasonal and transient dockage in Manhattan with a beautiful location, easy access to the city, and exceptional service. We do our best to show our marina guests all New York City has to offer.
What's so unique about North Cove Marina?
North Cove Marina is unique because it offers the hustle and bustle of New York City while still providing a peaceful setting of Battery Park. It truly offers the best of both worlds to our marina guests. At North Cove, you can step off the dock and directly into Brookfield Place, full of luxury retailers, restaurants, and exciting events happening every day.
What should locals know about North Cove Marina?
North Cove Marina is proud to be a part of life downtown! Not only is is a great place to relax and unwind after a long day (the sunset view is great), it is also the home of North Cove Sailing. The sailing school is a great place for members of the community to come together, have fun, and compete in our weekly sailing races. Our sailing school offers seasonal membership, community sails, and kid's sailing camp.
How has the evolution of the neighborhood impacted the evolution of North Cove Marina?
North Cove Marina has been run by IGY for three years now, and during that time we have seen Battery Park City blossom into a bustling community and home to so many. We are happy to witness this and are always striving to be a part of it.
What's new for North Cove Marina this summer?
This summer we plan on continuing to provide our exceptional service to transient yachts, while putting more emphasis on our seasonal customers who host tours on the Hudson. We hope more members of the community are able to participate in daily sails and cruises on the Hudson.
What are your favorite local spots?
We love the Loopy Doopy Rooftop bar located in the Conrad Hotel. Great for drinks after a long day on the docks! Sweeping views and a great place to unwind with the crew. P.J. Clarks and Pier A are also great spots!
