Christopher Street Pier *

Legendary Gay Historical Site
The Christopher Street Piers were once marked for their proclivities toward cruisieness since, well, since gay men have cruised. Today the city has remade the piers into a tourist destination with stunning concrete tiled piers that jut into the Hudson, featuring amazing views of the statue of liberty. Two brand new massive Richard Meyer condo buildings look at the base of the piers. You'll still see gaggles of boys sunning themselves and plenty of furtive glances, but the new space does not provide opportunities for actual rendezvous. But take a walk down Christopher Street, pick up a coffee and sandwich along the way, and you'll be in for a very gay and very special afternoon at the piers.
