This is a new pier that has been added to the Riverside Park/Hudson River Park complex.  New lighting, seating, and other amenities have been installed on the pier.  Its a favorite attraction for park visitors.



A view of the pier, looking west towards New Jersey.  This is a cement pier with beautiful brickwork that provides the surface.  Metal railings and seats line the parameter of the pier.



A view of Riverside Park.  The old remains of the Miller Highway (the green steel with the arches) abuts the new West Side Highway viaduct.



A closer view of the old Miller Highway.  This highway was part of the West Side improvement project which was led by Robert Moses.



Under the viaduct, once can see that portions of the old roadway still remain, while other sections have been removed.
