1. The Piers Are Home to a Few Television and Film Studios

Once the piers were redeveloped, many became used for different kinds of sports. But several famous TV and film studios are located at the piers. Silver Screen Studios, located at Pier 62, is Manhattan’s largest center for television and film production. Some former tenants were shows like Law & Order, Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Spin City, and Ready, Set … Cook. Movies filmed here include You’ve Got Mail, The Preacher’s Wife, Six Degrees of Separation, and Everyone Says I Love You.

Pier 59 Studios is also another premier photography and multimedia center with studios used for a range of purposes, including hosting live events and renting out project space for organizations.
