Cross Street: Spring Street
Pier 34 has two ‘finger’ piers that connect the Holland Tunnel Vent Shaft with the bulkhead. The southern finger is open to the public for sitting, strolling & fishing. The northern finger is reserved for emergency access to and maintenance of the vent shaft controlled by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. There is an ongoing art installation on the pilings between the south and north finger piers. This installation by Ron Baron, entitled “Birds”, is made from old, colorful lobster buoys.
In the future, Pier 34 will continue to offer access for relaxation, fishing and other activities.
