Alex says

One of the most unusual drinking experiences in NYC is The Brooklyn Barge, which is what it says. Floating on the shore of the East River, there is a great view of the Manhattan skyline. The beer selection has a small range of craft beers, nothing too rare. Note the map is not quite accurate for this entry as the address is subjective. (7/2016) UPDATE: Note The Brooklyn Barge is only open until Halloween 2017, and should return around Easter 2018. It does not open on rainy days due to the open nature of the vessel. (8/2017)
