Pier park is really out there – NJ.com

The city celebrated the start of construction of its Pier C Park yesterday with a symbolic groundbreaking near the Hudson River’s edge.

The kidney-shaped, 2-acre park is anchored to land by a narrow pier on one end and a meandering path on the other.

“It will offer the chance for a different relationship with the water than what you normally have,” said landscape architect Mark Pattin, of Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates, the firm designing the park. “It’s an amazing opportunity to build a pier from scratch.”
