History, recreation and leisure come together at Chelsea Piers, a group of four historic piers on the Hudson River. Some of the most famous ocean-going liners tied up at these docks, including the Lusitania; but these days Chelsea Piers is making waves as an entertainment and sports activities precinct.
You can have a go at more than 30 different sports at Chelsea Piers. Tee off with a round of golf at the Golf Club, work out in the Sports Center health club, go ice skating at the Sky Rink, play football or basketball in the Field House, or join in a game of ten-pin bowling at 300 New York.
You’ll also find an indoor rock-climbing range, gymnastics facilities, a day spa, dance studios, and a training facility for elite athletes.
On Manhattan's West Side, Chelsea Piers are entered at W 23rd Street and 11th Avenue. It's a long walk from the nearest subway at 32rd Street, so you might want to take a taxi. You’ll be dropped at Pier 61 or 60 on the Chelsea Piers Access Roadway.
