Pier 57 Opening 50K-sf Waterfront Public Space and Market

The revitalized Pier 57 located along the Hudson River between West 15th and 16th Street opened a new 50,000-square-foot public space and food market on the ground floor of the pier on April 1st. Anchored by technology giant Google, the 50,000-square-foot space dubbed Market 57 includes community classrooms that are bookable by nonprofit organizations that will be offering scheduled programming; a virtual “discovery tank” providing educational information to visitors about Hudson River ecology; and a food hall that focuses on businesses run by women and people of color. In addition, a showcase kitchen and education space that will host events and rotation chefs-in-residence has been installed by the James Beard Foundation, a New York City-based national nonprofit culinary arts organization.
