3. The Binghamton
While many of the boats on this list have some military history, others were used purely for transportation purposes. The Binghamton Ferryboat was one such boat. The Binghamton was in service from 1905 to 1967 and was responsible for transporting passengers across the Hudson River between Hoboken and Manhattan. After it was decommissioned as a means of transportation, it was docked and converted into a restaurant and bar from 1975 to 2007. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in July of 1982. In 2012, it was announced that the ship-turned-restaurant would be replaced by a new ship, however, the ship still remains docked in Edgewater, New Jersey.
