HISTORY OF THE OYSTER HOUSE
Located where Battery Park meets the Hudson River, Pier A is a 28,000-square foot, multi-experiential food and beverage destination with Manhattan’s finest sunsets and water views.
Pier A is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is a designated New York City landmark. Opening in 1886 as the headquarters for the New York Harbor Police and Department of Docks, Pier A later served as the VIP entrance for European Ambassadors traveling to Ellis Island and as the main station for the Marine Division of the New York City Fire Department.
Pier A is also home to Blacktail, a stunning Cuban-American cocktail bar from the team at Dead Rabbit and a beautiful private event space with world class catering and unmatched views of New York Harbor.
