Pier A


22 Battery Pl
New York, NY 10004 @ SSS

We stopped by after South Street Seaport for drinks @ the Oyster House.

Pier A is ‘covered’ with a harbor house. At the front is the three story part (2nd floor is  the table serving Blacktail and 3rd is for event), and at the rare by the water, is the ground floor Oyster House. Self serving, foods and drinks are done at the right, tables are on the left and out doors. I’ve not been in NY for long – only 30 some years, so didn’t know what the fish market era was really like – like since 1830s. But in my genealogy research, I did learn something about it: NYC is where U.S. began after gaining the independence from the British. The fish market ‘culture’ dominated the city. Fulton market was the oldest fish market in the U.S., long before they moved it to Bronx in 2005. I suppose this Pier A is probably as close as one could get to that bygone ear. If you’re interested in this, go visit South Street Seaport Museum.

We only have drinks out on the duck, but probably will return for some foods?
