Chelsea Piers Management provides extensive public access throughout the 28-acre complex. A 20-foot wide by 1-mile landscaped public promenade along the perimeter of the three piers provides the public with scenic views of the Hudson River. The Chelsea Piers Maritime Center runs along this promenade and is a vital and important part of the complex. It features dining cruise ships, motor yachts and sailboat tours, a small boat marina for private boats, a sailing school and much more. The promenade, which is open to the public during daylight hours, is landscaped with dozens of planters featuring seasonal plantings maintained by Chelsea Piers Management.
