An expanded portion of Pier 6 opens Saturday, May 28. The new 1.8-acre area features three regulation-sized sand volleyball courts, two 15,000 square-foot lawns, and an expanded network of lighted pathways planted with native plants and trees.
The four summer concessionaires selected for Pier 6 will operate in a newly-constructed plaza space with tables, chairs and umbrellas. Beer and wine will be served on the roof deck of the restored building starting in mid-June. The concessionaires will operate on weekends and holidays from approximately 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. between Memorial Day weekend and Labor Day.
New additions to Pier 6 include Milk Truck, best known for its grilled cheese sandwiches and milkshakes. Milk Truck will operate from a tent in the plaza. Also new is Bark, serving a classic dog and veggie dogs, burgers and beverages. Starting in mid-June, Bark will operate on the roof deck of the concession building on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays until midnight and serve beer and wine.
Returning Brooklyn-based concessions include Blue Marble Ice Cream, serving organic ice cream, and Uncle Louie G’s Italian Ices, as well as Brooklyn Bridge Wine Bar, Calexico Carne Asada and Ditch Plains Drop-In.
May 28 also marks the return of the free Governors Island ferry service, which will operate from Pier 6 on Saturdays, Sundays and holiday Mondays through Sept. 25.
