Situated between the Intrepid Sea-Air-Space Museum and the Circle Line, Pier 84 stretches almost 1,000 feet into the river and measures nearly 100,000 square feet, making it one of the largest piers on the Manhattan waterfront.
Pier 84’s most distinctive feature is an interactive fountain that greets visitors and entices children and even some adults to get wet in fine weather. Enjoy the fountain while dining at Hook’d or renting a bike at Bike Rentals NYC.
Walk west and you’ll find a dog run, the Pier 84 Community Garden maintained by the West 44th Street Block Association and Friends of Pier 84, Manhattan Kayak and an environmental classroom. Relax on the gently sloping lawn that accommodates picnics and sunbathing.
