Hudson River Park Living


New York City’s Hudson River waterfront has undergone an amazing transformation in recent decades, thanks to the creation of the Hudson River Park. Adjacent real estate has become extremely desirable and it is easy to see why!

Spanning over 550 acres along more than four miles of Manhattan’s west side, this public park has become a beloved space, particularly the stretch across from the Village, Chelsea, and lower Manhattan. Offering a diverse range of recreational activities, educational programs, and cultural events, Hudson River Park has become a symbol of community connection, environmental stewardship, and urban revitalization.

Established in 1998 through the Hudson River Park Act, the park is managed by the Hudson River Park Trust, a unique partnership between the City and State of New York. Its operations and maintenance are funded through a combination of rents, fees, sponsorships, grants, and private donations from individuals, businesses, and foundations. Additionally, the design and construction of the park have received significant support from the state, city, federal governments, as well as private funding.

The collective efforts of the local community, organizations like the West Side Task Force (1986), the West Side Waterfront Panel (1990), and the Hudson River Park Conservancy (1992), along with an agreement between New York City and New York State, paved the way for the creation of this remarkable park. The completion of the park has brought about dramatic changes and residential construction, creating apartments that have nearby access to this much-needed, loved, and coveted green space.

Hudson River Park offers a multitude of activities for all to enjoy. Park-goers can engage in running, wheeling, walking, kayaking, playing, dancing, and relaxing amidst the park’s recreational piers, upland areas, the protected Estuarine Sanctuary, the bike path, walking path, the almost finished Gansevoort Peninsula Park with beach, Water Playgrounds, Little Island, and Pier 40 (with Leroy Street dog water park), and Chelsea Piers. The park also hosts a wide variety of free cultural and fitness events, fostering a deeper connection between the community and the park.
Hudson River Park is open to the public, free of charge. Its commitment to accessibility ensures that all residents and visitors can enjoy the park’s amenities and experience the tranquility and beauty of the Hudson River.

Hudson River Park stands as a testament to the power of community engagement, environmental conservation, and urban renewal. It has not only provided New Yorkers with a recreational haven but has also redefined the city’s relationship with its waterfront. As the park continues to evolve and thrive, it remains a symbol of the city’s commitment to preserving natural spaces, cultivating awareness, and creating meaningful and memorable experiences for all.
