Sections of Pier 45 will be closed as we repair pavers in the seating area and improve soil to better support the pier’s mature trees. Work on Pier 45 is also expected to be complete by Summer 2019. Thank you in advance for your patience during the construction process.
Amenities on this 850-foot-long pier include shade structures, seating areas, wood decking and passive grass lawns. This is a favorite spot for sunbathing in the neighborhood and an event space in the summer.
A vestige of the Hudson River’s past as a bustling commercial waterfront can be seen between Piers 45 & 46. In the nineteenth century as boats grew longer, the piers needed to be extended, but could not exceed a length of 1000 feet due to federal law. Instead of adding onto the pier, land was excavated inland to make way for longer vessels.
