71 Water Grant St, Yonkers, NY 10701
The two-story Yonkers Recreational Pier has been a staple on the Hudson River for over the past 100 years. Located at the foot of Main Street, the pier has recently been completely renovated and is the centerpiece of Yonkers’ downtown/revitalization program.
Yonkers, the unofficial 6th borough, throughout history has been known as a small farming community with a very active waterfront. Did you know Yonkers is where Elisha Otis invented the first safety elevator and the Otis Elevator Company?
The pier is a unique site for cultural and community events, festivals and fireworks presentations as well as a location to charter your private yacht from Skyline Princess Cruises for your celebration! From this location, you can enjoy your catering hall that floats down the Hudson River and see the New York City skyline giving your guests a night to remember.
Please keep in mind that this port is used for private yacht charters only.
