Hudson River Park at Pier 46
west st and charles st, New York, NY 10014
The synthetic turf lawn on Pier 46 is a great place for unprogrammed recreation, such as tossing a ball with your family and friends. The piles at the western end of the pier are being preserved because of their value for fish habitat. You might also catch a glimpse of a cormorant or other bird on one of these piles. Hudson River Park offers several educational programs at Pier 46 (see link below).
A vestige of the Hudson River’s past as a bustling commercial waterfront can be seen between Pier 45 and Pier 46. During the nineteenth century, as boats grew longer, the piers needed to grow, but could not extend into the channel due to federal regulations. Instead of adding onto the pier, land was excavated inland to accommodate longer vessels.
