Originally built in 1954 and used as a garage, Pier 40 has undergone several transformations in it’s 54 years. It's most recent incarnation is as a sports field complex. As evidence of structural decay grows, new plans for the building and rehab of this 14 acre structure jutting out into the Hudson River get shelved or scrapped. Hudson River Park officials will consider other proposals now for the pier’s long-term use. It's a unique part of the mosaic of New York City. Save it, and they will come.
