OLDNYC.COM--> Manhattan's Hudson River Piers Virtual Tour --> Chelsea to Upper West Side --> Gallery #5

Piers 3 and 4 of the Passenger Ship Terminal.  Another large vessel is docked in Pier 4.

Piers 5 and 6 of the Passenger Ship Terminal.  One can see how large the piers and vessels are when compared to the little boats that are sailing past the piers.

The Cunard White Star Line at pier 94.

As we approach West 57th Street, the dividing line between midtown and the Upper West Side, we will see several more piers along the way.  These piles may have represented pier 93.  Here is who once utilized the piers: N.Y. City (piers 93-94), Furness Bermuda (pier 95), Furness Line (96-97), The Interboro Rapid Transit Company, also known as the IRT of subway fame, (pier 98) [interesting enough, the old IRT power plant is located in this area along the West Side Highway], and N.Y. City (pier 99).

A pier that is currently being used by the New York City Department of Sanitation.  A large storage shed for winter road salt resides in this area.  Garbage trucks are usually parked by the entrance to the pier.
