    Nice find on that Maloof Cup article. I skated at Pier 62 yesterday and I gotta say that is was the sickest park I've ever been to! Everyone was so hype when we got in there, it was a rare experience. If you skate or blade you should definitely hit this place up. Oh, and I have photos > http://www.flickr.com/photos/canadate/ the rest are here >> http://s973.photobucket.com/albums/a...k%20Pier%2022/

    WHAT: The Grand Opening of the Newest Section of Hudson River Park

    WHEN: Monday, May 17, 2010, 10:00 AM

    WHERE: Hudson River Park’s Pier 62 @ W. 23rd Street & the Hudson River


    The newest section of Hudson River Park, New York’s premier waterfront recreational venue and the largest new open space to be built in Manhattan since Central Park .....
    This is beautiful. Is this the portion just north of the Chelsea Piers where Basketball City and some other ugly buildings were razed?

    I hope that eventually that the cruise ship terminals in the 40's and 50's are razed. They blight the waterfront.

    Thanks, Scumonkey. I agree.

    Is the dumpy building north of the Chelsea Piers (below) gone?

    yes, that too is history
    I believe that's about the same place the skate bowl and carousel now are!

    I was at these piers today. This is a very nicely designed section of park.

    I wonder how long those low trucking facilities(?) to the east of the park can resist the pressure to sell to a developer.
    I actually don't mind them and I don't see where they'll be able to relocate to.
