water taxi beach is manhattan bound

I had the pleasure of visiting Water Taxi Beach (at it's original Long Island City location) last summer for the New York City Food and Film Festival. And I must say, I was blown away by its kitschy charm. While it could have been the soft, warm summer breeze, the blood orange meets persimmon sunset streaming through the New York City skyline, being barefoot in the sand, or the admittedly good company, this little spot is truly not to be missed.

Now, while the Long Island City location is nothing but a short ride on the 7 train (I believe two stops past Grand Central), the owners of Water Taxi Beach recently revealed that they will be opening up two new Manhattan beach locations this summer! One will be on Governor's Island and the second at Pier 17 at the South Street Seaport. The latter being the perfect spot to meet your banker friends for happy hour this summer. And believe me, if it's anything like the original, you won't be complaining one bit about making the schlep all the way downtown.

See ya there.
