Parking and Not parking at Pier 55

If Pier 55 sponsors an overnight event, participants should not leave their vehicles at Pier 55. Have someone bring you -- or your vehicle may be towed. This is especially important during the winter with snowplowing needs, etc.

If you are attending an event at Pier 55, please park on our assigned side and not on the Pottery Museum section. Park in front of Pier 55 if possible. Stop in at the front desk if you need clarification.

WE WANT YOU! 10 more people are needed to make this trip a go!! We have extended the sign up deadline to June 5th. Please share this information with anyone that you know might enjoy the trip. They do not need to be a senior or a member of the senior center. If you are interested in going on this wonderful summer trip up North, we can find a person to share the double rate and room with you. YES, THIS IS THE PRICE! You will not find another trip of this caliber for this low of a rate.
