Pier 66 @ 26th Street and 12th Avenue
Of course it’s a dive bar. This historic lightship spent three years at the bottom of the Chesapeake Bay before being salvaged and brought to Chelsea Piers. Good place to meet up with friends and watch the comings and goings on the Hudson. There are beer and burgers available on the pier and you might even catch a water salute from the neighboring John J. Harvey fireboat, if you hit it right. No mater. Just being on the water makes it worthwhile.
