Locust Point Yacht Club

Bronx, New York

Locust Point, also known as Pirate Cove, is a small, peninsular neighborhood in the southeastern portion of the Bronx in New York. The Locust Point Yacht Club is located at the end of Longstreet Avenue and occupies the outermost block before Eastchester Bay. The area is comprised of single-family houses, populated by Irish, German, and Italian families. The fishing pier here is a popular spot for fishermen. Like many other private clubs who want to maintain their exclusivity, this club does not have a public website. For more information, call (718) 822-9806.

COVID-19

Keep your distance from other people.

Practicing social distancing is still essential. Only go to the beach if you are able to keep 6 feet or 2 meters away from others. Follow the instructions provided by your local health authorities. If your community has asked that you remain indoors and away from others, do so. Spending a day in any crowded place is the worst thing we can do for our most vulnerable right now and will counter our efforts to curb the virus’s spread.
