Pier 76 Opens as Recreational, Cultural Space on Hudson Riverfront

A former New York City Police Department impound parking facility has reopened as Pier 76, a recreational and cultural space on Manhattan’s western shoreline that is now part of Hudson River Park. 

The $31-million project to integrate the space into the 550-acre park was completed in 81 days, starting with the dismantling of the 245,000-square-foot impound facility earlier this spring. Gov. Andrew Cuomo also announced that Pier 76 will be among the sites hosting outdoor screenings for this year’s Tribeca Festival.

“For years, Pier 76 was an eyesore that blighted the West Side,” said Cuomo. “However, thanks to the hard work of so many New Yorkers, this gorgeous new park will provide residents and visitors with incomparable access to outdoor recreational opportunities and cultural attractions like the Tribeca Festival for years to come.”

Planning for the long-term use of Pier 76 will be done by the Hudson River Park Trust.
