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.
