Directions to Chelsea Piers
  1. Chelsea Piers
    Completed in 1910 as a passenger ship terminal, it was supposed to be the destination of the ill-fated oceanliner Titanic. After years of disrepair, it was turned into a sports and entertainment complex in the mid-1990s and serves as the New York dock for Spirit Cruises, Bateaux New York and Atlantica.
  2. Empire State Building
    This impressive 1,250-foot tower opened in 1923 and was the world's tallest building for 30 years.
  3. World Trade Center Site
    The National September 11 Memorial features two reflecting pools set within the footprint of the World Trade Center's twin towers and the 3,000 names of those who lost their lives in terrorist attacks at this landmark.
  4. Battery Park City
    This office and apartment community was built on the landfill from the excavation of the World Trade Center in 1977.
  5. Battery Park
    Called "The Battery" by New Yorkers, this 20-acre park at the southern tip of Manhattan was originally the site of early Dutch fortifications in the 1600s. Its name originated from the battery of cannons installed there by the British during Colonial times.
  6. South Street Seaport
    Dating back to the 1600s, South Street and its Seaport District were once the world's gateway to New York City and America.After nearly a century of decay, the district was redeveloped in the 1960s into a vibrant commercial area filled with shops, restaurants, offices and the popular South Street Seaport Museum.
  7. Brooklyn Bridge
    Regarded as one of the greatest architectural achievements of all time, it was designed by John Augustus Roebling and was constructed between 1869 and 1883.
  8. Brooklyn Heights
    Considered New York's first suburb when it was developed in the 1820s, this charming residential section across the East River from Manhattan was originally accessible by steam ferry. It was declared New York's first landmark district in 1963.
  9. Manhattan Bridge
    The last of the three suspension bridges built across the lower East River. The lower level has three lanes, four subway tracks, a walkway and a bikeway. The upper level, originally used for streetcars, has two lanes in each direction.
  10. Williamsburg Bridge
    At the time it was constructed, it set the record for the longest suspension bridge span on Earth. This bridge is among only two suspension bridges in New York City that still carry both automobile and rail traffic.
  11. Governor's Island
    These 203 acres were under military command from the 1700s through 1996, making it the oldest continuously operated military post in U.S. history.
  12. Statue of Liberty
    A gift to the people of America from the people of France, "Liberty Enlightening the World" stands 300 feet above New York Harbor. She was built by sculptor Frederic Auguste Bartholdi.
  13. Ellis Island
    Nearly 17 million immigrants were processed here between 1892 and 1957.
  14. New Jersey Central Railroad Terminal
    Located at the north end of Liberty State Park, this beautiful 1892 structure was in operation until 1954. Over one half of the new arrivals at Ellis Island passed through this railroad terminal on their way to new lives across the United States.
  15. Colgate Clock
    This stately timepiece once graced the Colgate Palmolive plant.When the factory was demolished in the 1980s, the clock remained.
