2. Pier 76

OHNY Hudson River Architectural Tour NYC Pier 76

Pier 76 currently serves as a tow pound operated by the NYPD, but plans are underway to transform it into a park if the city can find an appropriate place to move the tow pound. Development at Pier 76–which, according to our guides, is slated to become a shopping mall–is part of the current debate about how to repair and sustain the piers on Hudson River Park that are deteriorating and struggling financially.
