Pier A
Pier A is a municipal pier in the Hudson River at Battery Park near the southern end of Manhattan in New York City.

Built from 1884 to 1886, Pier A was designed by George Sears Greene Jr. to house the New York City Department of Docks and Harbor Police. Greene took inspiration from The Statue of Liberty, which can be seen from a similar tower. As the years went on, Pier A underwent many changes, including replacing the tin roof with copper. In 1919, a ship’s clock was installed in the tower as a memorial to the 116,000 US soldiers who died in World War I.

In 1960, The New York City Fire Department turned it into fireboat station. Then, in 1992, the pier became vacant and fell into disrepair. To save this historical landmark, restoration began in 2009. Since 2014, Pier A has been home to its own restaurant and bar, “Pier A Harbor House.”Located at the tip of Manhattan, the massive 28,000-square foot space is a self-described “multi-experiential food and beverage destination.” With various rooms along the Hudson River, Pier A Harbor House promises envy worthy sunsets.

The bar’s nautical theme is a nod to the pier’s past function, featuring the original search light, starboard/port lights and restored gauges. The three story, multi-roomed food and drink hall features four different bars, each of which tote different and unique aesthetics.

The Harbor House partners with Taste New York, bringing locally sourced items to their menu. The menu items themselves have distinct sea-fare, including an oyster bar, market fish, and specialty seafood. As far as drinks go, there are no wrong choices, with a variety of old classics and house specialties.

With a combination of amazing views, rich history, and incredible food, Pier A is a perfect way to spend an evening.
