Glen Cove is a city in Nassau County, New York on the North Shore of Long Island. Glen Cove has three beautiful beaches are Pryibil Beach, located on East Beach Road, Crescent Beach located on Crescent Beach Road, and Morgan Park located on Germaine Street. The city of Glen Cove has an extensive waterfront area on Hempstead Harbor and Long Island Sound. There are three public beaches: Crescent Beach, Morgan Beach (at Morgan Park), and Pryibil Beach. Hempstead Harbour Yacht Club, Glen Cove City Yacht Club, and the Garvies Point Boating Association are the three major sailing clubs in the City. Brewer's Boardyard is the only boating storage yard left in the city. The city has a boat launch ramp at the end of Garvies Point Road. The city has no facilities for kayaks. Sailboat racing in the Glen Cove area can be watched from a cliff-top park in the neighboring village of Sea Cliff and from various points on the hills of Garvies Point Preserve. Races are Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday evenings, and Saturdays during the afternoon. The annual "Around Long Island Sailboat Race" finishes at the end of the breakwater at Morgan Park. On the waterfront the saying goes, "If you can hear the train, it is going to rain." If you hear that train whistle blow, that means the wind is coming from the east and a storm is on the way.
