The Event of the season is back!  Mingle with the Skidmore alumni community and friends for a sunset on the Hudson at the Frying Pan on Pier 66. Enjoy the sights and sounds of New York harbor while sipping cocktails at the Lightship Frying Pan, a historic ship that sank and remained underwater for three years before being raised and restored to her former glory. Pier 66 Maritime is a former railroad barge complete with a caboose, bar and grill where you can enjoy a sunset view rarely seen from Manhattan that you will not want to miss.

***Free drink tickets for the first 100 Skiddies who check in.  You will also get a green Skidmore sticker so you can easily find other Skiddies.***

Skidmore will have a small reserved section with some seating available starting at 6:00 pm and lasting through the evening.
