Pier 62: All New!

It’s the new Pier 62, just north of Chelsea Piers on the Hudson River. It’s been under construction for awhile now, but is open. Flowers, grassy areas, tree lined paths…and a new carousel. It really completes the revitalization all the way up the Hudson to 125th Street. There is a great bike path, lots of walking areas and access to the piers all along the river.

The flowers were gorgeous, especially the purple ones.

The choice of animals seemed a little odd at first, but then I discovered that the wood carvings represent 33 animals of the Hudson River Valley.  And the roof is even green!  Rides are $2 in case you are wondering.

The fish and the turkey...
