Chelsea Piers is a series of piers in Chelsea, on the West Side of Manhattan in New York City. Located to the west of the West Side Highway (Eleventh Avenue) and Hudson River Park and to the east of the Hudson River, they were originally a passenger ship terminal in the early 1900s that was used by the RMS Lusitania and was the destination of the RMS Titanic. The piers replaced a variety of run-down waterfront structures with a row of grand buildings embellished with pink granite facades.
The piers are currently used by the Chelsea Piers Sports & Entertainment Complex. The Chelsea Piers Sports & Entertainment Complex is a 28-acre waterfront sports village located between 17th and 23rd Streets along Manhattan's Hudson River. This privately-financed project opened in 1995. Situated on Piers 59, 60 and 61 and in the head house that connects them, the Complex features the Golf Club, a multi-story driving range; the Field House, which contains numerous sports and training facilities; Sky Rink which has two full-sized ice rinks; the Chelsea Piers Fitness health club; and Bowlmor at Chelsea Piers, a bowling alley. The complex also includes several event centers; the Studios film and television production facilities; and the Maritime Center marina for mooring private boats.

  • Interesting how many people here are saying Titanic was originally going to arrive at Pier 54 and that Olympic docked at 54 as well. Both are wrong, both of those are attributes to Pier 59. Olympic didn’t dock at 54, as it was Cunard’s dock.
  • Th Carpathia dropped off first and second class passengers here, after first dropping off the life boats belonging to the White Star Line at pier 59
