The Frying Pan is a bar on a boat floating off Pier 66. First, the customers were just local New Yorkers. Then, it became somewhat of a “party boat”, with long lines, people chugging beer buckets, and illegally diving into the river. Now, its a massive seating area where you can see the sunset over the river, and the atmosphere is overall more chill. It’s no longer a place for clubsters , and now, they serve up great beer and burgers.
- The Hudson River we know today was a different place two decades ago because then it was just a maze of piers that were abandoned.
- The frying pan was a boat shaped like a bathtub that appeared in the Hudson River two decades ago amidst all the confusion on it.
- One after the door boats that served as restaurants and pubs appeared alongside the Hudson river that it became a makeshift riverside pub.
“The entire thing swayed in the lapping waves of the mighty Hudson, and the first customers tended to just be locals.”
