Have you been aboard F/V Sherman Zwicker yet?

This historic wooden schooner, transformed from her fishing boat roots, has been making waves on the Hudson waterfront as a chic and trend-worthy floating oyster bar called Grand Banks.

Moored at Pier 25 on the Hudson River, the 145 capacity vessel sports a menu that includes “sustainably sourced oysters” and “nautically inspired cocktails”.
