Pier 66 Upland Park is a 2.5 acre parcel located west of the West Side Highway between West 26th and West 29th Streets, represents the southern terminus of Segments 6 and 7 of Hudson River Park. Pier 66 and its boathouse act as dramatic counterpoints to the linear esplanade and allow park visitors to walk further out into the Hudson. This narrow boardwalk pier is furnished with benches and lighting and terminates in a broadened area with a shade structure, allowing views up and down the river. This is also the location of a public art piece, a beautiful waterwheel that interacts with changing tides, currents and winds.
