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 hodgepodge of run-down waterfront structures with a row of grand buildings embellished with pink granite facades.

  • 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 hodgepodge 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 complex includes film and television production facilities, including those for NBC Universal (Law & Order: SVU, The Blacklist), a health club and spa/salon, the city's largest training center for gymnastics, two basketball courts, playing fields for indoor soccer, batting cages, a rock climbing wall, and dance studios. In addition there is a bowling center, a golf club with multi-story driving range, and two full sized ice rinks for skating. Sky Rink has the only year-round ice skating rinks in Manhattan. The complex also includes a marina for mooring private boats and four dedicated event spaces: Pier 60, The Lighthouse and Current, all operated by Abigail Kirsch Catering, and Sunset Terrace at Pier 61. On July 12, 2012, Chelsea Piers Connecticut opened in Stamford, Connecticut, offering a wide range of sports venues, including indoor fields, basketball and volleyball courts, twin ice rinks, an Olympic pool, a health club, tennis courts, squash courts and more.

  • Die Chelsea Piers sind Landungsbrücken am westlichen Ufer von Manhattan im Stadtteil Chelsea, in New York City. Die Piers wurden vom Architekturbüro Warren and Wetmore, das auch das Grand Central Terminal entworfen hat, geplant und gebaut. Die Chelsea Piers umfassten ursprünglich 9 Piers mit einer Länge zwischen 116 Metern und 275 Metern, die jeweils 41 Meter Abstand hatten und zum Teil durch einen Kopfbau an der Straßenseite miteinander verbunden waren. Der Bau der Piers begann 1902, im Jahr 1910 wurden sie eröffnet. Heute befindet sich auf den Piers 59, 60 und 61 der Chelsea Piers Sports & Entertainment Complex, das größte Trainings- und Sportzentrum für Sportarten aller Art in der Stadt. (de)
