Meatpacking District

Gansevoort St. to W 17 St.

Step into Hudson River Park’s iconic and evolving Meatpacking District riverfront by visiting any of these exciting destinations.

Opening in 2022, the national historic landmark, Pier 57, will be transformed into a mixed-use pier with a rooftop park and an interior public “living room” as well as a public marketplace, music venue, office space and state-of-the-art classroom with gallery. Gansevoort Peninsula, which features the last remaining block of 13th Avenue, is currently under construction, slated to open in summer 2023.

Piers & Places

Opened in 2023, Gansevoort Peninsula is the largest stand-alone recreational space in Hudson River Park. Providing 5.5 acres with a sandy shoreline beach, ballfield, pine grove, boardwalks, adult fitness equipment, and a salt marsh. Plus, the last remaining block of 13th Avenue!

Located just south of 14th Street in Hudson River Park, Little Island is conceived and built in partnership with the Diller-Von Furstenberg Family Foundation and Hudson River Park Trust.

This Meatpacking District hideaway, east of the roadway, has an elegant oval of grass as its grand feature, surrounded by tables and chairs, and is tucked behind a playful fence.

Beloved by families, the Pier 51 playground offers imaginative play with a nautical theme. Children especially love the expansive water and sand play areas.
