Setting — Lee's is the third marina on the southern shore of Northeast River. A boardwalk runs parallel to the shore and 3 piers flow out into the river. Two have floating slips on both sides; the third has slips inside and alongside dockage on the outside. A large, gray, vertical-sided building with blue trim sits at the head of the dock and houses the offices and ships' store. Nicely varnished picnic tables sit on a patch of grass overlooking the docks.

Marina Notes — A very nicely furnished little boaters' lounge is in a corner in the ships' store; a phone's available for local calls. Two basic, but quite serviceable, complete bathrooms have fiberglass shower stalls with fresh curtains, asphalt tile flooring, and Formica walls. Pat's Marina, between Charlestown and Lee's, accepts transients under 32 ft. only when space is available; Charlestown Dock has 2 free slips. Stay tuned for a 36-slip municipal marina.

Notable — Directly adjacent to Lee's is a town park with the Fire and Rescue Boat Pier. Next to that, past the trailer parking lot, a new condo and marina is being developed on the Avalon Yacht Basin site. Charlestown merits a stroll along its leafy waterfront lanes - it has the feeling of being on the verge of discovery (although a few lovely waterfornt homes suggest that some have.) About three blocks from the docks is the Market Street Café and grocery store - a smoky, local hangout featuring a kind of "shuffleboard on legs" that's played on two long tables - with great enthusiasm. On the lower level, under the café, is a fairly well-stocked convenience store and deli. At the edge of town is Beachcomber, an eatery housed in a modular building. The Wellwood restaurant is an experience and makes Charlestown a real destination. Alternatively, dinghy across the river to North East and tie up at the dock 'n' dine Nauti-Goose Saloon.
