Curbed has a lovely photo essay by Nathan Kessinger posted today on the West Harlem Piers over at the Hudson and West 125th Street. This is probably our favorite waterfront park in Harlem since it is right on the water and allows folks to fish on the piers or lay out on the lawn during the warm weather season. There is also no barbecue traffic at this one and the green space is relatively quiet at most hours. Fairway is just across the street (the park used to be a Fairway parking lot) so food and drink are readily available. Those who live in Central or East Harlem should just take the cross town BX15 bus to get straight to the piers. Check out the additional images on Curbed: LINK
