PIER C PARK TO PARTIALLY REOPEN FOR FIRST TIME SINCE HURRICANE SANDY, OFFERS EXPANDED SUMMER HOURS
Pier C Park, which was badly damaged by the storm surge during Hurricane Sandy, will partially reopen to the public on Saturday June 8th at 7:00am.
A contractor has completed repairs to several portions of the park, including the playground areas, parts of the lawn, the restrooms, and most of the western side of the park, which will be open to the public. The eastern side of the park facing the Hudson, which sustained the worst damage, will remain fenced off while repairs continue.
Hurricane Sandy resulted in broken benches, cracked concrete, extensive erosion, exposed and damaged irrigation lines, and damage to electrical equipment. The park's large round concrete benches were tossed around by the storm, causing significant physical damage to the decking.
New Summer Hours: In response to popular demand and as a thank you to everyone for your patience, the City is pleased to announce the following expanded summer hours: 7:00am – 11:00pm daily.
