    Well, it's been reopened. Looks like they just stopped with the new tiles. Up until a week or so ago there were huge slabs of them sitting off to the side and we thought they would re-tile the whole thing,





    Looks a little wonky imho but at least it's open again... My daughter in pic. was happy...

    I think they were very behind schedule and since that is also a NY Water Taxi landing that had been closed, there was pressure involved maybe to re-open on schedule.

    I'm sorry but that's no excuse... down by Chelsea piers just two days before they opened to the public,
    there were huge swaths of walkway that needed to be tiled over...
    They got it done in no time flat.

    Hudson River Park

    Pier 84
    Construction Alert


    Please be advised that as of Friday, May 21, 2010, the over-water portion of Pier 84 has reopened to the public. Although the full repair work to the pavers is not yet complete, the pier will remain open to the public while the work continues. Over the next several week, there may be a need to close specific areas of the pier to finish the work, but we do not envision needing the pier to be completely closed during this process. We thank you for your patience and understanding as this necessary repair work continues.

    good to hear, maybe they will dig that nasty asphalt back out and replace those missing tiles properly?!

    I'm guessing that there are some milestones that have to be achieved by Memorial Day. This was probably one of them. FAIL.
