About Pier 57

Located within Hudson River Park at West 15th Street, Pier 57 is a year-round community destination that celebrates New York City’s culinary and cultural diversity. It includes plentiful public open and community spaces, both indoors and outdoors, where visitors can gather for a waterfront experience filled with food, art, culture, nature, and more. Its public open and community spaces include a new rooftop park stewarded by Hudson River Park Trust, bookable community classrooms, and public gathering place called the Living Room. The ground floor is home to Market 57, a food hall with 15 vendors, as well as a mission-centered showcase kitchen called PLATFORM by JBF and a rotating chef residency program called Good to Go by JBF, all curated by culinary nonprofit the James Beard Foundation. Market 57 serves as an incubator for local small businesses and food entrepreneurs with a focus on women- and BIPOC-owned food concepts.

Originally built in 1907 as a shipping and storage terminal and reconstructed by the NYC Department of Marine and Aviation in 1952, Pier 57 has become a significant part of NYC’s history and earned a spot on the National Register of Historic Places. Thanks to the joint efforts between Hudson River Park Trust, Google, Jamestown, James Beard Foundation, RXR, Youngwoo & Associates, and The Baupost Group, Pier 57 was thoughtfully redeveloped as a community destination with public spaces and a rooftop park, community events and a market hall while adaptively reusing the historic building.
