In the past decade, the decrepit piers and industrial zones along five miles of the Hudson River on Manhattan's West Side have been transformed. Hudson River Park is now a destination that gets 17 million visits annually, with a bike path, green spaces, playgrounds and recreation ranging from minigolf and skateboarding to kayaking and even stand-up paddleboarding.
For much of New York City's history, "the waterfront was where the industrial areas were," said Madelyn Wils, president and CEO of the Hudson River Park Trust.
