What to Expect at Pier 57's New Rooftop Park
Although much of the pier is still undergoing renovations, the rooftop park provides an escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. Amenities include:
Sprawling green space
Areas for the public to sit and relax
Amazing views of New York Harbor and Little Island, another green space that opened in the area last year.
City Winery, based at the pier, offers food and live music
More uses and amenities for the public are slated to open in the fall.
Pier 57 was constructed in 1952 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It originally opened in 1954 as the terminal for Grace Line, and then in 1969, it became the Hudson Pier Depot for the New York City Transit Authority. The depot closed in 2003 and was shuttered until this redevelopment. Hudson River Park has been working with the state and city to reimagine this space as a mixed-use pier with lots of amenities for New Yorkers and visitors to enjoy.
