10. Pier 57

OHNY Hudson River Architectural Tour-NYC Pier 57

Abandoned for almost a decade, Pier 57 will soon see a new life as a commercial center and art space with restaurant offerings and spaces for film screenings. The whole three-acre complex will be built out of shipping containers by Young Woo & Associates, who also built Brooklyn’s Dekalb Market out of repurposed shipping containers. The new Pier 57 is set to open in 2015.
