There has been lots of discussion on visiting La Marina so let's do it! All the reviews say the view is spectacular and well worth the hike (for some it might be) uptown. As Uptowners, it's not that much of a hike and hopefully the weather will be amazing!
We can meet for drinks at dusk (they are strong!). I wasn't convinced by the reviews that the food is worth the price. In your RSVP, please indicate if you would like to do dinner and I will try to make reservations.
Here is information from their website:Dyckman Marina has been a vital part of upper Manhattan’s unique waterfront culture for more than two centuries. Where in former times, notable Manhattanites kept their summer estates and yachts, where seaplanes and ferries dotted the piers, nestled just below the Cloisters at the end of Dyckman Street along the Hudson River, sits the new La Marina, NOW OPEN.The newly rebuilt restaurant, bar, lounge and events space covers more than 75,000 square feet of Hudson River waterfront in Upper Manhattan. A short walk from the A-train, La Marina is the ideal spot in NYC to enjoy cocktails at sunset, to hop off your bike for a break, to host your event, or to enjoy a romantic, moonlit dinner for two.
With stunning river views, dining at La Marina is an “out of city” experience. Taste fresh-shucked oysters from ‘Geppetto’, the classic raw-bar boat, sample our famous Chicken Lollipops, crack open a fresh grilled lobster, or dig into a steak with a side of shisito peppers, both charred to perfection. Kick off your shoes, order a frozen cocktail and a snack at the beach, and relax with your feet in the sandwhile enjoying the cool breeze blowing off the river.The lounge at La Marina offers private tables for small groups right at the river’s edge. This forgotten stretch of NY history is yours to enjoy.
Looking forward to seeing you all soon!
