For those who love boating and eating seafood will love the Grand Banks Oyster Bar. It is a seasonal experience that floats along Manhattan's Hudson River waterfront to give people a chance to enjoy the historic deck of the 72-year-old Sherman Zwicker while shucking delicious oysters.

A collaborative effort between Maritime Foundation, which currently oversees the preservation of the Sherman Zwicker, Atlantic Yachting founders Alexander and Miles Pincus, restauranteur Mark Firth as well as architect and interior designer Eric Cheong, the Grand Banks Oyster Bar makes for a fun adventure in as easygoing a way as possible. Cheong says, "This project is like a merger of everything perfect that I love: working with friends, supporting a project that brings more awareness of maritime history and fishery conservations, and also just creating a great destination in Manhattan that is unique, but has a very pragmatically educational component to it too."
