- New York City will open a beach in Manhattan’s West Village this summer, becoming the borough’s first public beach.
- The new beach, Gansevoort Peninsula, was first announced in 2019. Although originally intended to open in 2022, it will now open to the public this summer.
- The five-and-a-half acre Gansevoort Peninsula includes a salt marsh, an athletic field, a launch for kayaks and other small boats, a public art installation called “Days End,” and a tree-lined promenade. In the south area of the park, there will be a sandy area lined with umbrellas and lounge chairs.
