Work begins on the Hudson River Park

Construction work on the Tribeca section of the Hudson River Park began to heat up this holiday season. The three-year, $70-million project will include sturdier and longer piers, more elaborate play areas and many of the uses that used to be on Piers 25 and 26. Above, the Pier 25 fence after it was taken down. Below left, the Downtown Boathouse building being demolished on Pier 26, which also housed the River Project. Below right, is a tent the Trapeze School of New York will use until it moves to its new location at Pier 40 this winter. The park project is being done by the Hudson River Park Trust, a state-city authority, and is being paid for with federal money controlled by the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation.
