After a steady diet of mermaids and marching bands, sometimes you just need to kick back with a drink. Enter the Frying Pan. Apparently on some nights, it’s a crowded Chelsea Pier hell of the too cool for school crowd. Luckily, I experienced it as it’s meant to be: a relaxing boat bar/restaurant with great view of the sunset over the Hudson River.
Don’t over think it. Just go, see the boats, see the water, and leave before the masses descend.
