Chelsea Piers

chelsea-piers_535×230.jpg

Chelsea Piers Sports and Entertainment Complex is a playland for all ages in the middle of Manhattan. Whether you are a serious athlete looking for off-season training or a sometimes sport looking for entertainment, Chelsea Piers is the place to go. Transformed in 1910 from dilapidated water front, the space was eventually constructed into a sporting megaplex in 1994 by the same firm that designed Grand Central Terminal. The concept was to bring sports that are not readily available to New Yorkers. Now every activity imaginable is under one roof for any to enjoy. Among some of their many offerings are 2 ice-skating rinks, outdoor and indoor driving ranges, the only indoor sand volley-ball court, a climbing wall, bowling alley, and a fitness center that could make an Olympian sweat. If you’ve been searching for a place to play your favorite sport or simply want to try something new, Chelsea Piers won’t disappoint.
