The Frying Pan

Lightship Frying Pan was built in 1929 and led a remarkable life. After being abandoned for 10 years while docked at an old oyster cannery she sank, probably due to a broken pipe. She was underwater for three years before being raised by salvors. Instead of going to the scrapyard, the ship was sold to its present owners. After tons of silt and shells were removed from the hull, the ship was outfitted with a new engine and, in 1989, was sailed to New York City. Frying Pan is now docked at Pier 66 Maritime which is located on Pier 66a in the Hudson River Park at West 26th Street and 12th Ave. in Manhattan, NY. While the outside of the ship has been restored to her original appearance, the inside retains the barnacle-encrusted, sunken-ship motif that acknowledges her storied past. The ship was designated a historic site in 1991 and is currently on the US National Register of Historic Places.
