Watermark is a big space at the end of Pier 15 near the South Street Seaport, and both the horseshoe bar inside and tables outside have great views overlooking the East River. When you realize you’ve commented on how impressive the Brooklyn Bridge is four times and you start to feel like a tourist, you can do some people-watching of actual tourists, who constantly stream by on their way to sightseeing cruises that dock next to the bar. Come during Happy Hour (4-6pm on weekdays), or whenever you want to have some wine and oysters.
