So much history in NYC that going inside the piers is not that big of a deal. However, the sailing excursions that leave this area are wonderful and are highly recommended…..

Along the west coast of Manhattan you'll find a string of piers one after another, with plenty to see and do. From dining, to an indoor sports park, and a driving range, there's something to do for everyone. For avid cyclists and runners, there are paths that run parallel to the piers and West Side highway that will allow you... More

We were lucky enough to attend a wedding in July 2014. The views are spectacular. The windows open up and the entire room opens up like you are on the river. There are sports facilities all around that we didn't get to visit. If you are planning a wedding or party, look into this venue.

I didn't even know the Chelsea Piers were there until we walked to catch our harbor tour. The park surrounding is beautiful. People were playing soccer, there is a skateboard park and there's a great place to sit and watch the boats come in and go out. Now that I know it's there, I'll definitely be back to have my... More

We were here for a hockey tournament and were not terribly impressed with the Sky Rink. Based on the outside of the complex, we expected a first-class arena. The change rooms were tiny and the ice surface was soft and rough. We are from a town of 5 000 people in Canada and our rink is far superior.

The expectation was certainly different than what was there. it was our first day in NY so we wanted to take the subway and find our way around anyway, so we thought we would check it out. Since it was not interesting to walk around, we decided to go bowling. it cost $85 for a family of 5 to bowl... More

Chelsea Piers Is a good place to sit by the Hudson River and have an ice cream or a drink while exploring this area of NYC. My daughter had golf lessons there, they have a huge net you don't hit the balls in the river.Fun.

It was such an awesome evening event held at this venue. The food and drinks could not be topped. The staff was great.

I took my daughter for a couple of climbing lessons on the wall at the back of the middle pier. (Em, 59, I think.) She had so much fun - she's only 4 but the instructor (Egor) was so patient and good with her that she was begging to go back for the rest of the trip (and has since... More
