On the south side of Pier 76 is the Classic Car Club, a membership club for car enthusiasts that welcomes all visitors to check out its superb collection of vintage and cutting edge cars for free. Classic Car Club also hosts periodic free events and educational classes for the public.

The balance of Pier 76 is owned by the City of New York and operated by the NYC Police Department as a tow pound. Once the City can find an appropriate relocation site for the tow pound, at least 50% of Pier 76 will be dedicated to park open space and recreational use. Hudson River Park Trust will seek to identify an income-generating use to help support the overall Park’s care and operations on a portion of the pier.
