    The Pier goes out 1000 feet into the Hudson and the view up + downstream are magnificent ... to say nothing of the close-up view of the Intrepid next door ...

    At the center of the pier is a terrific fountain with dancing waters ... they started it up just after the ribbon was cut.

    Arranged in a circular pattern, it shoots water in varying rhythms and at times reaches 25' + into the air.

    Kids of all ages will love it on hot summer days ...

    Looks great. I guess I'll have to wait for the gala.

    Along with the boathouse (seen above) there is a kids playground (still under construction), a dog run (two pics of the first visitors below) and a "viewing garden" at the foot of Pier 84 where it meets the bikeway (a gremlin of sorts greets you as you enter the Pier) ...

    including this big kid
    I love the way it's "flush" with the ground, you can run right through. It's really beautiful.

    At one point it literally gushed a flood up out of the ground -- all the folks standing nearby and admiring the pretty dancing waters were sent scurrying

    Default Dog Run

    We took our puppy to the dog run last week. She actually escaped under the fence! It needs to be repaired. So anyone with small dogs should be careful.

    Anyone have an idea when this will be reopened? Nothing's mentioned on their website.

    http://www.hudsonriverpark.org/explore/pier84.html

    We noticed how many cracked and loose stone tiles kept manifesting and it seems they are replacing many. Hard to tell with the pier being fenced off.

    thanks

    Good question, I have been trying to find out myself. Seems they are replacing just about all of the stone walkways on the pier.

    Yeah. We just moved to the neighborhood last summer and the pier was a great place to go but I was surprised at how many were chipped, loose or cracked. (Didn't it just open 4 years ago?)
    I hope they have it open for the summer.
