Mayor Adams was on hand to give remarks and check out the new facilities at the recent ribbon-cutting ceremony for the renovated ground floor of Pier 57.
Located on the Chelsea waterfront at W. 15th Street, the adaptively reused space includes a food hall and educational facilities.
The mayor rang the bell at PLATFORM by JBF, a part of the James Beard Foundation’s Good Food for Good initiative. Per the pier57nyc.com Web page, “Through rotating chefs-in-residence, PLATFORM by JBF will provide an unparalleled stage for award-winning chefs and emerging talent who are aligned with the foundation’s mission to showcase their work to a global audience. Exciting cooking demonstrations, collaborative dinners, and free and ticketed events, offer food lovers a front-row seat to experience the culinary arts.”

Adams also toured the River Project’s part of the pier’s educational component. He got some pointers from Noreen Doyle, the president and C.E.O. of the Hudson River Park Trust, which runs Hudson River Park, which contains Pier 57 among its two-dozen piers.
