Crown Jewel NYC Pier 17 Shimmers Bright
Amerlux puts Pier 17 in the best light with on-time opening
If the Hudson and East Rivers were a necklace around the island of Manhattan, Pier 17 would be the jeweled-pendant hanging at the bottom. Drawing its name from the area’s maritime shipping history, Pier 17 is now an upscale entertainment center, featuring a variety of restaurants, retail spaces and event forums.
Following the devastation of Hurricane Sandy, real estate company The Howard Hughes Corporation rebuilt Pier 17 into the five-story multi-use venue it is today. Part of the revitalization of the facility included building a new green room space to support the open-air concert venue—the Rooftop at Pier 17. When not in use by the Rooftop performers, the Green Room also functions as an event space for meetings and intimate-sized weddings.
