Manhattan Opens Its First Public Beach, but There Will Be No Swimming | NBC New York

You can now go to a real Manhattan beach — and no, we’re not talking about the Brooklyn neighborhood or the famous coastal spot in Southern California.

Gansevoort Peninsula opened Monday afternoon as the first public beachfront on the island, according to the Hudson River Park Trust. Located just west of the Meatpacking District, the 5.5-acre green space will feature a beachfront along with a salt marsh and a water access point for kayakers and non-motorized boats, the group said, “all with stunning views overlooking the Hudson River and lower Manhattan skyline.”
