Construction is progressing on Gansevoort Peninsula Park, a new 5.5-acre public recreational space near the West Village on the Hudson River. Designed by James Corner Field Operations, who was commissioned by the Hudson River Park Trust in January 2019, the park is located next to Pier 53 and directly across from the Whitney Museum of American Art, and will most notably contain Manhattan’s first public beach.
The journey from Midtown, Manhattan to Staten Island just got easier following the launch of a new NYC Ferry line connecting the two boroughs. The ferry, which costs the equivalent of a single-swipe subway fare, now stops in Midtown at West 39th Street, Vesey Street in Battery Park City, and the St. George Ferry Terminal in Staten Island.
