Mission: Sector New York, is the largest Coast Guard (CG) operational field command on the East Coast. The maritime community knows “The Buck Stops Here” when there are CG-related operational issues to be resolved. The main staff is located at historic Fort Wadsworth on Staten Island, NY. We execute CG operations from Sandy Hook, NJ, north through the Port of NY/NJ, continuing up the Hudson River to just south of Lake Champlain, and up the East River to the Long Island Sound/Connecticut border. We provide “One Stop Shopping” for both our external customers, stakeholders, and for our own CG family. We integrate traditional CG programs into a single command focused on our two major operational processes: PREVENTION & RESPONSE, in support of our service’s five fundamental roles: Maritime Safety, Maritime Security, Maritime Mobility, Protection of Natural Resources, & National Defense.
