DRINKS (various locations): As Labor Day approaches and summer comes to a close, there's no time like the present to have an alfresco drink or two at one of the varied Manhattan spots with breathtaking Hudson River views. Two of the best -- and most famous -- places for such fun are the Boat Basin Cafe at West 79th Street and Pier 66 Maritime, better known as The Frying Pan, where drinks and more are served on a floating railroad barge. Info: The Frying Pan: Through Sept. 30, weather permitting (and later when the temp is above 65 degrees) at Pier 66, West 26th Street at Hudson River Park; Boat Basin Cafe: Through late October, weather permitting, at West 79th Street at the Hudson River; Frying Pan: 212-989-6363, fryingpan.com; Boat Basin Cafe: 212-496-5542, boatbasincafe.com -- ANNE MACHALINSKI(Credit: Joe Buglewicz)
