Meatpacking District

Gansevoort St. to W 17 St.

Step into Hudson River Park’s iconic and evolving Meatpacking District riverfront by visiting any of these exciting destinations.

Gansevoort Peninsula, which features the last remaining block of 13th Avenue, opened in October 2023. The area also features a “sand bluff” beach for lounging, a turf athletic field, a dog park, river views and water access for small boats.

Little Island, a new, free public Park pier within the larger Hudson River Park, opened to the public in May 2021, providing New Yorkers and visitors from around the world with a unique green space unlike any other in New York City.

Pier 57, a national historic landmark, opened in April 2023 and has been transformed into a mixed-use pier with a rooftop park and an interior public “living room,” as well as a public marketplace, music venue, office space and a state-of-the-art classroom with an interactive gallery.

14th Street Park,  across 11th Avenue from Pier 57, serves as a green oasis within the bustling Meatpacking District. It’s an ideal place for office workers and visitors to rest and relax at lunchtime or after work.

Piers & Places

Located just south of 14th Street in Hudson River Park, Little Island is conceived and built in partnership with the Diller-Von Furstenberg Family Foundation and Hudson River Park Trust.

Opened in 2023, Gansevoort Peninsula is the largest stand-alone recreational space in Hudson River Park. Providing 5.5 acres with a sandy shoreline beach, ballfield, pine grove, boardwalks, adult fitness equipment, and a salt marsh. Plus, the last remaining block of 13th Avenue!

Historic Pier 57 has been newly restored, providing ample indoor and outdoor public open space, including a rooftop Park, a waterfront food market, City Winery, community spaces and an interactive gallery and classroom focused on local wildlife and waterways.

This Meatpacking District hideaway, east of the roadway, has an elegant oval of grass as its grand feature, surrounded by tables and chairs, and is tucked behind a playful fence.
