About the Project:
Pier 5 takes advantage of the space afforded by its vast post-industrial landscape, sustainably repurposing a derelict six-acre pier into a much-needed community amenity. With its sweeping views of both the Manhattan skyline and the head of New York Bay, the resulting park provides an inspiring setting for athletics, events, and leisure, all within a public landscape unlike anywhere else in New York City.
