11 of the Coolest Things to Do in Brooklyn

Pilot, Pier 6, Brooklyn Bridge Park

Like Grand Banks’ Sherman Zwicker in Hudson River Park, Pilot is one of America’s most beloved wooden schooners. While the ship was once used as a ferry for World War II soldiers and has circumnavigated the world not once but twice—to the delight of Brooklyn day-drinkers and oyster slurpers—she retired to Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Pier 6 to serve as a floating bar and restaurant. Swing by the pier’s northern promenade to try out the sustainable seafood (see: softshell crab po’boys, lobster rolls, and scallop ceviche), or just go for a tour; Pilot also serves as a living museum and hosts free public programs.
