Eater's Pop-Up Pizza Party on the East River Ferry — AKA #PizzaBoat — is now underway. The boat is loaded with pizzas from Luzzo's in the East Village, plus sodas, Eater swag, and more fun surprises. There's plenty of pizza to go around, so do hop on if you want a slice.
UPDATE, 8 p.m.: The Pizza Boat is headed back to port. But here's a look back at the festivities from this afternoon:
