Pier 70 Pier 70 will soon get a new lease on life.

At long last, Pier 70 is finally getting a new lease on life. For decades, most of the historic pier has been idle and inaccessible to the public, with a random mix of vacant land, deteriorating buildings and random storage. Soon, the 28-acre waterfront neighborhood will have new housing, waterfront parks, space for artists and local manufacturing, and rehabilitated historic buildings.
