Restaurant: Frying Pan

It has been a bleak week and this weekend’s forecast is looking less than stellar. However, I’m hopeful for smooth sailing ahead as we approach June. After a long, brutal winter and this week’s fickle weather, you have to take advantage of every sunny ray that comes your way in New York. What better way to take advantage of  the rare NYC sunshine than to drink and dine in true summer style… on a boat!

Located (or rather, docked) at Pier 66, Frying Pan is a historic lightship built in 1929 that offers a fantastic view of the Hudson via a 16-foot observation plank. The Frying Pan spent three years at the bottom of the  Chesapeake Bay prior to being brought to Chelsea Piers    making it the quintessential “dive” bar.

On any given summer day, this boat is packed to the brim with young city-dwellers looking to share a little fun in the sun.  If you’re looking for a taste of shore living during your stay in New York City this summer, the Frying Pan is the place to be.
