    Pier 84 rebuild.

    The building will house a cafe and restrooms, and arc around a plaza and fountain at the pierhead. The pier will have a lawn, play area, boathouse, and a boardwalk opposite the Intrepid.

    I wonder if they'll do anything interesting with the front of the UPS building across the DiMaggio Hiway?

    Pier 84 is going to be fantastic -- it's looking like it's very close to completion, with much of the planting along the actual pier already in the ground. It seems it is just the area around the service building shown in Zip's new pics that needs to be finished now ...

    Almost all the new paving along the pier has been installed. New lighting is in. The circular fountain at the foot of the pier looks to be complete.

    Last night before the fireworks the interior / exterior lighting on the boathouse building at mid-pier kept going on and off --

    Hoping Pier 84 will be open by November 11 (scheduled moving day for the Intrepid on its way to dry dock for cleaning / repairs).

    Can't wait, I love a community party. Have to see it now before the Intrepid goes away.

    PIER 84 OPENING CELEBRATION

    Saturday October 21, 12 Noon - 4PM

    http://www.fohrp.org/fohrp2.php?screen=events#pier

    The new Pier 84, which will be completed in October, will not only be the largest public park pier along the River, it will also be spectacular, with a natural lawn and trees, lovely gardens, a boat house. a class room, a floating dock, great viewing areas far out in the River, a nearby store and snack bar, and much more.

    To celebrate the completion of the Pier, Friends, in partnership with the Trust, Friends of Pier 84, the 44th Street Block Association and other groups, will sponsor a gala opening celebration on the Pier.

    This will be a free event that will include food and drink, kidsí activities, games, music, boat rides, a possible marching band, exhibits, tours and who knows what else. It should be a fabulous time, and we hope to have a large turn out.

    Please join us for the exciting FREE event.

    Pier 84 Ribbon Cutting took place today -- the heavy rain held off until after the ceremonies (but the grey skies weren't so good for my new cell-cam) ...

    The Pier & Park are fantastic.

    The Governor and others made some good speeches and then cut the ribbon ...
