As for the New York question - Liberty Harbor is great from the standpoint of being able to get into NYC - a ferry operates from from there and the trains (subways) are with in a couple of blocks. The RV park is not a "resort" with lots of amenities. For me it is a basic hookup park with good access to NYC. WE have stayed there twice and will stay again if we return to the NYC area. If you decide on Liberty Harbor do make reservations. As far as NYC goes by a three or four day pass on one of the tourist buses near a subway station. You can get on /off anywhere along the line and the tickets usually include passes to museums and other items of interest.

Liberty Harbor RV parking is in the parking lot of Liberty Harbor Marina. The area is completely fenced in and I think they have roving guards. It is not in a bad area but it is right on the water so there are industrial area around it. We walked to the train in the evening and were not concerned with our safety.

Stayed at Liberty Harbor for a week with 2 kids
As a campground it's a parking lot with water Nd power
It has 24 hr guards. It's not in New York it's in Jersey. It's very safe, probably doesn't even need the guard. Walk 30 metres to the ferry which drops you at Wall street or 5 blocks to the subway
We did not feel threatened at any stage and would stay here again happily.
Ps ( $20 mobile dump on site so no need to move the coach)
Does have washing machines and dryers also

I love the Koa in Newburgh, I live in the area and went numorous times. Beuatiful wooded lots. They have a NYC bound bus that leaves every morning and so much to do at the campground for kids and adults. It's also far away from the traffic and noise of the urban area. Free pancake breakfast , two pools, and very dog friendly too. Another option is Croton Point, I believe it is a New York state park, on the Hudson River and within walking distance to the train station only 45 minutes to New York City. Lots to do near there. Check out Van Courtland Manor and Bear Mountain.
