On March 25, 2021, following a public review process conducted in accordance with the requirements of the Hudson River Park Act, the Hudson River Park Trust’s Board of Directors voted to approve a lease with the Intrepid Museum Foundation.
Under the lease, Intrepid will operate the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is designated a National Historic Landmark.
In addition to the museum operation, Intrepid will be required to maintain free public access, subject only to security screening and issuance of pier passes, to the surface deck of Pier 86. Intrepid will be further obligated to maintain and repair all pier improvements. These include the welcome center, the pier piles, bulkheads and other marine structures.
