The beach is part of a larger project: the peninsula Gansevoort Peninsula will be completely converted into a public park. It comes to an area of more than 22.257 square feet. On the side of the Hudson river is the beach, so the organization, The Hudson River Park Trust known.
What can you concretely expect? There is indeed a recreation area, but for the most part the coastline is composed of rocks. And also, you may not swim in the icy water of the Hudson. Not the best place for a sunny afternoon in your bikini, but guaranteed that you will get a beautiful view.
The work on the park and the beach starting next year, and will normally be completed by 2022. You can't wait until then? We were looking for a number of other places where your city and the beach, can combine.1. Barcelona
