About Pier 54

Pier 54 is a long open pier that provides public access. It has an eye catching steel arch at the entrance – remnants of Pier 54’s past pier
shed for ocean liner port use. The Pier is one of Hudson River Park’s main event/performance spaces.

Pier 54 has been home to HRP’s RiverFlicks and RiverRocks, MTV Concerts, Wigstock, Heritage of Pride Dance Party, and many more.

Historical Note: Famous Tragedy: Look closely at the entrance arch at Pier 54, and you’ll see that it was once a Cunard-White Star pier. It was the
departure point for the Lusitania’s first voyage.

In the future, Pier 54 will be home to historic vessels and will have areas for passive recreation such as sunbathing, strolling, reading or watching
sunsets. A large performance space will also be a part of Pier 54’s future.
