1. Morgenstern's Finest Ice Cream 2 Rivington St, New York, NY 10002 (Lower East Side)

This nine-seat ice cream parlor is a true parlor; you can order while sitting at six seats on the bar. Once you have ordered, the man behind the scoop will likely slide your way one of his unique "texture-driven small-batch" flavors like a salt & pepper pine nut or Brazilian bourbon topped with curiously created made-to-order whipped cream or even Fernet biscuits.

7. Frying Pan 205 12th Ave, New York, NY 10001 (Chelsea)

Located at Pier 66 in Chelsea, the Frying Pan is quite literally a bar on a docked boat. The boat is a historic 1929 lightship, and the outdoor bar juts far out into the pier thanks to a long barge. A center bar and grill serves up beer and bar bites like Pat LaFrieda sirloin burgers, pulled pork sandwiches, and garlic fries. There's a dance floor at the end of the barge, which gets more and more crowded as the sun sets on happy hour.

When you walk up to this Staten Island ballpark, you'll note the sails, extended across it's fore.

Those boats make up only a part of the beautiful NYC skylin, set to grab your attention when it's had it's full of standard concession food and the one of 19 luxury suites, if you're so lucky.
