Please be advised that construction continues at the St. Johns Terminal Building and  West Houston St between Washington St and West St will continue to be closed to vehicular traffic overnight (9pm to 5am) until further notice.

The pedestrian sidewalk on the north side of Houston Street and south side of Clarkson street are currently closed due to the construction.

The Esplanade at Morton Street is now open for pedestrian traffic.  The landscaped area will remain closed until work has concluded.  Intermittent short-term closures of portions of the Esplanade may be required while the landscape is restored.

 Sections of Pier 45 and the southern portion of Pier 84 will be closed as we repair pavers in the seating area and improve the soil to better support the pier’s mature trees.  Work on Pier 45 and 84 are anticipated being completed by Summer 2019.  Thank you in advance for your patience during the construction process.

Pier 40 - Picnic House is closed until further notice


NYS and NYC have worked together to install temporary barricades along the entire bikeway.  Cyclists are cautioned to slow down at intersections, to stay in lanes and to watch for pedestrians crossing.  Pedestrians are asked to use the separate esplanade wherever possible.
