Enjoy sun, fun, food and spectacular views of downtown Manhattan and the Brooklyn Bridge and great music at the newest Water Taxi Beach along the New York City waterfront.

Throw down your towel and soak up some sun on over 20,000 square feet of sand (300 tons), or join a pick up game of Beach volleyball or basketball. Enjoy respectfully priced food and drink at the Beach Grill or grab a 1-mile salad featuring ingredients grown 1-mile or less from the Beach at our Backstage Cafe.

Experience great music and entertainment at The Beach, New York’s premier live outdoor venue situated a few steps from the sand.

And please note that dogs are not allowed!
