Vision & Progress
With thirteen reconstructed piers and dozens of landscaped acres offering both tranquil respite and a multitude of active recreation, it’s difficult to imagine the west side without the Hudson River Park. After all, this nearly 550-acre treasure is now 72 percent complete, and an integral part of so many New Yorkers’ daily lives.
There's still so much in store for Park visitors in the future. Right now, we’re building the Park’s fourth non-motorized boathouse in Tribeca. Uniquely, the building that will house these kayaks, paddleboards or outriggers will also host a restaurant with some of the harbor’s best views. We’re also in the second phase of constructing a 650-foot long public pier at 57th Street, near the northern end of the Park.
In the Meatpacking District, we’re working with a private developer to plan a creative commerce market with restaurants and food events areas, cultural and educational uses in a historic pier – Pier 57. Among Pier 57’s attractions will be a rooftop park programmed by the Tribeca Film Festival. Once Pier 57 comes on line, the rent it generates will help us care for the Park’s upkeep in the future.
And there's more too. Keep reading to learn about our plans and progress – what’s to come and where we’ve been.
