The design for HRPK’s Pier 26 is inspired by the Manhattan shoreline that would have existed prior to Henry Hudson’s 1609 expedition. The pier includes a series of ecological communities representing this native landscape, including from a woodland forest to the rocky tidal zone and the Hudson River itself.
One of the most unique of these native coastal environments is a manufactured rocky tidal marsh, the Tide Deck which is located on the western end of the Pier. The Tide Deck and its marsh plants ebb and flood with our daily tidal cycle, and features many interesting habitat enhancements including tide pools.
To wrap up our programming season, we are excited to offer a few in-person and socially-distant tours on the Tide Deck walkway. Join our River Project staff to learn more about this special environment during Tide Deck Tours. Space is limited, please sign up today to join us. Please note that COVID-19 safety precautions will be in place for this event. This event requires pre-registration, with timed entry.
