At the 79th Street Boat Basin, the view's the thing—especially the view of the sun as it gorgeously sinks behind the Palisades every clear night. This is the Upper West Side's unofficial summer HQ, full of grill smoke and dogs on leashes and babies in carriages. It's loud, and the food is basic barbecue. But it's a great neighborhood resource and deserves a lease in perpetuity.


Hours dependent on weather.

Sat–Sun, 11 a.m.–3 p.m.
