I almost don’t want to write this review because the Honorable William Wall is the best kept secret in Manhattan!  Such a great way to see a different view of the city, hang out with friends, and enjoy an evening of fun and drinks.  So fun, you must do it!

Unless P. Diddy personally invited me to board his yacht, you would never find me on board a boat.  At least I initially thought.  This review is not for the Manhattan Sailing Club (MSC), but for the Honorable William Wall, the MSC’s naval clubhouse on the Hudson River that lies halfway between New York and New Jersey. I used to go to the Frying Pan, but after docking on the Willy Wall, why party “on” the water, when you can party “in” the water?  Upon disembarking, the panoramic views of Manhattan, Ellis Island, and New Jersey are stunning and unparalleled. During the summer, there’s simply nothing like drinking on a deck, tradewinds gently blowing through your hair, while the sun sets in the water in miraculous hues of orange, red, and gold. The club runs frequent races and regattas, so in addition to the breezy views, you might get lucky and get some action (sailing, that is).   You don’t have to be a Manhattan Sailing Club member to go on the Willy Wall. Transportation to and from the clubhouse leaves every half hour from the World Financial Center. There is a $10 fee for guests and non-members, but free for those who show their membership card. The bar only serves drinks and snacks so the MSC encourages people to bring a picnic lunch or dinner.
