Mayor, Governor cuts ribbon on largest NYC rooftop park


Mayor Eric Adams and Governor Kathy Hochul officially christened the city’s largest rooftop park open Monday afternoon.

The top city official and head of New York State joined Hudson River Park Trust President & CEO Noreen Doyle and Google CFO Ruth Porat atop the windy rooftop park at Pier 57, which overlooks the West Side’s Little Island. After a decade-long renovation process, the 80,000-square-foot rooftop park was finally declared open during a ceremony on April 18.

The historic pier was revitalized by a development team led by RXR and in addition to the park is promised to include 350,000 square feet of commercial office space which will be used by Google, City Winery, and others around the pier’s perimeter.
