Description

West Harlem Piers Park is the culmination of a 30 year struggle by the community to regain their waterfront. This point of access to the river, historically a natural cove between adjacent bluffs, and more recently an industrial port, had become a paved and fenced parking lot. The project creates a continuation of the Manhattan linear Greenway along the river and reconnects the residents to the water in a meaningful way.
