Walked over one to Pier 66 12th@26th access of the Hudson Greenway. Frying Pan is an old barge serving food and beer. Fish and chips was excellent. The multi decked large seating area there is room for everyone. Best time to go is after dark...More

We stopped by for a beer and were really happy with the view and the style in general. However, it was little overpriced (and the beer was not draught).

Great place for beers and cocktails if you can find seating as this venue gets a little crowded. The views are splendid. I wouldn't order any food from the bar as the service would be lackluster. 5 Stars for the beer and views. Much better...More

What can you say? It’s outdoors! Great music! Plenty of food and libations around. It’s a great place to have a gathering and to just hang out!

Lovely location with such huge potential. Most people just drinking at 8pm should have been the warning sign. In retrospect it was good news that all the seafood specialities were not available (although this really disappointed us at first). As they would probably have been...More

Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful
brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most
popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s
jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The
contemporary art scene is an integral part of the
neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost
every night of the week and countless exhibits to
explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York
