East River Waterfront Esplanade

Pier 15


The East River Waterfront Esplanade seeks to improve access to the waterfront, enhance pedestrian connectivity, and create waterfront amenities for public use and enjoyment. The existing esplanade is enhanced, new sections will be created, and several piers will be renovated and redeveloped. This bold and ambitious plan will revitalize the Lower Manhattan waterfront that currently suffers from weak connections, a lack of amenities, and underutilization. The project aims to improve the quality of life for local residents, workers, and visitors alike.
