On Sunday, State Senator Daniel Squadron, Manhattan Borough Parks Commissioner William Castro, the Lower East Side Waterfront Alliance, the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, and Community Board 3 opened part of the new waterfront park at Pier 42 on the Lower East Side for interim recreational use with a Waterfront Community Day and the launch of Paths to Pier 42, a series of art, educational, and design installations along the East River waterfront throughout the summer of 2013.
The opening makes a section of the pier accessible to the public, as planning for the redevelopment of the pier into a full waterfront park proceeds. The public can visit Pier 42, with the northern section between the greenway and the waterfront open for interim use. The space has been partially resurfaced and picnic tables have been installed.
