not your Father’s Pier One

“Riverside Park South is the largest new greensward along the west side of Manhattan.”

“These seven acres of parkland are the first of 27.5, which will be developed between 72nd and 59th streets.”

“A promontory, esplanade, and winding walkway welcome visitors who wish to enjoy nature and experience the river.”

“Pier I, a 715-foot recreational pier, is built atop the remains of the original wooden shipping pier.”

“Visitors to the pier are surrounded by the river almost completely, experiencing a view of Manhattan and New Jersey once reserved for sailors.”

“Since opening in 2000, Riverside Park South has offered a variety of events that take full advantage of the striking recreational opportunities the Hudson offers.”

and the food ain’t bad, either.
