Situated on Piers 59, 60 and 61 and in the head house that connects them, Chelsea Piers features numerous sports and entertainment venues, for golf, rock climbing, field sports, ice skating, fitness and even bowling. In addition, the complex also includes several event spaces, along with Silver Screen Studios and a commercial marina with both excursion and private boats.
In the early days, as docks for the famed White Star and Cunard lines, the Chelsea Piers welcomed most of the world’s great liners. Sometimes, in the afternoons, one could see as many as twenty stacks, as five liners prepared to sail on the evening tide. In 2018, the Trust completed a public process that resulted in the sale of unused development rights from Chelsea Piers. Learn more here. Read more about Chelsea Pier’s history here.
