Pier I (West 70th street) is one of my favorite places to hang out at in the summer. You’re treated to a very nice view of part of the skyline. Facing the other way, you can see the New Jersey skyline, which is actually very beautiful as the sun sets over it. It’s also relaxing to just sit or stand there and watch the sailboats and jet skis go by.
In addition, there’s an outdoor cafe there that sells booze. Great place to take a date on a nice summer night.
It’s next to the West Side Path, so watch out for bikers when you’re heading home after a few drinks.
