(Port Washington, NY)
Welcome to Freedom Boat Club of Port Washington. Tucked away on a peninsula along Nassau County's north shore is a little town called Port Washington. This picturesque village features treelined streets, breathtaking views of Manhasset Bay, beautiful parks, an active community center, a theater, fantastic restaurants and wonderful shops.
Located just 17 miles from New York City, Port Washington is easily accessible by car, train or boat. Port's population of about 33,000 represents a multitude of ethnic and religious backgrounds. All share a sense of community pride that runs deep. It all began with the Matinecock Indians, who called the town "Sin. Sink" or "place of many stones." In 1643, they sold the land to 18 English families from Stamford, Connecticut for a mix of kettles, wampum, lead, gun¬powder, cloth and clothing. The new owners called the land "Cow Neck" after the common pasture they all used. Later, they changed the name to Cow Neck Village and established dairy farming and fishing ventures.
Today, residents and visitors alike appreciate and enjoy the beautiful waterfront area with its beaches, parks, marinas, art galleries, antique shops, boutiques and free summer concerts - History buffs can visit historic homes and browse through the local history and nautical collections of the renowned Port Washington Public Library.
Port Washington offers amazing boating for Freedom Boat Club members. Scenic cruising, great spring fishing, and watersports in Manhasset Bay await boaters.
