Hundreds Sign Petition to Save Downtown Marina Operator, Manhattan Yacht Club

Hundreds of residents are pushing to keep a longtime sailing club and school anchored in the North Cove Marina, amid fears that the Manhattan Yacht Club might be sunk in favor of a larger operator.

Nearly 1,000 people have signed a petition over the past three days, imploring the Battery Park City Authority and elected officials to keep the Manhattan Yacht Club, which has run the marina since 1994.
