Other Big Event Options
From trade shows and live concerts to complex-wide outings and events, Chelsea Piers is a flexible canvas for a wide range of applications. In addition to our sports venues and dedicated event spaces, past events have also taken advantage of our 1.2-mile riverside esplanade and unique Hudson River docking opportunities.
In 2005, the Robb Report's Best of the Best: NY issue filled the ballrooms at Pier Sixty with a wide range of luxury items, including a customized Mini Cooper and a Hinckley yacht.
In 2009, a United States Tennis Association event tied to the US Open brought tennis legend Billy Jean King to Chelsea Piers for a barge-based tennis match off Pier 59.
During the 2008 Major League Baseball All Star Game, Vitamin Water hosted a "Homers on the Hudson" event directly off Pier 61. This major media event, which included a floating barge and themed target, attracted MLB All Stars, celebrities and local fans who attempted to win a million dollars by batting a baseball into an oversized, inflatable baseball glove.
In 2014, the golf driving range transformed into a private dining hall honoring renowned golfer Sir Nick Faldo. Client Glenmorangie hosted an intimate dinner featuring the single malt whisky, Abigail Kirsch catering, and a Hudson River sunset.
Chelsea Piers was also the location of choice for a pop-up holiday Target store, which included a themed barge docked alongside Pier 62 and a refitted Bateaux New York. As one of the earliest examples of a pop-up store, this 2002 event provided New Yorkers with a truly unique shopping experience.
