NYC ‘s Chelsea Piers Sports & Entertainment Complex – New York City

The Sports Center at Chelsea Piers


Pier 60 Hudson River Greenway, New York, NY 10011

The Chelsea Piers Sports & Entertainment Complex is 30 acres of waterfront property located between 17th-23rd Sts just off the Hudson River. It’s host to a myriad of sports facilities. Here you’ll find virtually any and every form of sports entertainment for people of all ages.

Here’s a list of some of the sports available:
Baseball, basketball, bowling, boxing, golf, gymnastics, running, skating of all sorts, swimming, volleyball, kayaking, rock climbing, dancing. These are just a fraction of what’s available!

Some years ago I’d visited it a number of times to watch skaters train…’For what and from where…..well, didn’t know, nor didn’t care….’just enjoyed watching it all!…..It was fun to watch.

Spectators are allowed to enter the East Rink and sit on the bleachers and watch skaters and hockey players. But you really should call before coming for that purpose since they occasionally have special events that are closed to the public.

Note that this complex is also host to Silver Screen Studios from which have come a number of Films and Television Shows.

The Complex resides on Piers 59, 61, 61 & 62. These Piers have their very own history. After 8 years of construction, the Piers originally opened up in 1910 and served as the recipient of many of the day’s luxury ocean liners. A few of these were the Lusitania, Mauretania, Normandie, and the Oceanic. Not only were the rich to be welcomed at this site but also the newly arrived immigrants from around the world. Immigrants by the many thousands. During the World War years, these piers also served as a departure point for many of our soldiers.

It was in later years after much neglect that the Piers were saved from possible demolition. From 1992-1994, Chelsea Piers Management, Inc. gained rights to build and maintain a huge sports/entertainment complex. Ground was broken in 1994, and the first stages of this complex were opened in 1995.
