Fantastic News - Roosevelt Island's Eleanor's Pier On East River Waterfront Now Open - Wonderful Public Space To Eat, Relax And Enjoy One Of The Best New York City Views

Roosevelt Island's Eleanor's Pier on the East River waterfront opened today in what the Concession Operator, Southtown Developer and Main Street Master Leaseholder Hudson Related, describes as a "soft opening" for this weekend and a full opening with vendors next weekend.

Right now, there are tables, chairs and umbrellas available at Eleanor's Pier. You can bring food purchased from local retailers or bring your own, sit by the river and enjoy one of the best views in NYC. I was there earlier this afternoon and saw people with pizza from Nonno's Focacceria and others who brought their own lunch.

I had a Starbucks Iced Mocha

This is GREAT!!!!!!

A wonderful public space open to everybody. One of the best things to happen for Roosevelt Island in a long time.

I am looking forward to seeing what vendors will be brought in. I am hoping for the General Tso's Chicken Po Boy vendor please.

Eleanor's Pier will be open Friday's Saturday's and Sunday's thru September 21.
