Quiet Bar with a view of Manhattan

My wife is overseas and I have a bunch of work to do but I want to take this evening off by myself. I am new to New York thought it would be nice to have a quiet sundowner and watch the sun set over manhattan. I live in Manhattan so it would be nice if I oculd get to the place by subway Grateful for suggestions

  1. If you plan to do this in the may want to check out DUMBO. The park under the bridge is beautiful and I'm sure there are some restaurants along side of it (just not sure what kind of sunset view they offer). This area has some very nice, and accessible views back at Manhattan.

    1. You may want to try Water's Edge in LIC - they offer a free ferry ride from 34th street pier, and although restaurant is pretty big, the bar area is pretty quiet.
