Not familiar with the Boat Basin Cafe? It’s one of New York City’s oldest event locations on the Hudson River, having hosted famous historic guests like Frank Sinatra and Mario Puzo. Constructed in 1937 by Gilmore D. Clarke during the tenure of Robert Moses as Parks Commissioner, the boat basin was originally built to offer a place for boats to dock during the summer; it also was part of a larger project to cover over the tracks of New York Central Railroad’s West Side Line. Today, it’s the only facility in the city that allows year-round residency in boats.
