Harbor Drive isn’t the only nautical-themed lounge that (according to part two of Steve Lewis's interview with the owners, up today) has a high-profile silent investor: A while back we told you about a Williamsburg project that Smith & Mills and Moto designer John McCormick was doing with Jud Longell, a bartender at DuMont, along with a silent partner. According to Down by the Hipster, that silent partner was none other than Heath Ledger. “His untimely death put the project in jeopardy,” says Down by the Hipster. “But his father became executor of the estate and because he knew how much the project meant to Heath, he released the funds to finish construction.” DBTH is promising interior shots later today.
