This year, two of New York City Pride’s most famed events are getting new homes, according Heritage of Pride. The city deemed Pier 54 structurally unsound to host the world-famous Dance on the Pier and the Rapture on the River event. Both events will be moved to Hudson River Park’s Pier 57. The change of piers makes a big difference as Pier 57 is actually an enclosed space. “We believe this will usher in a new era for these events,” NYC Pride’s Managing Director Chris Frederick said in a statement. “The space is significantly larger, which will allow for easier access to bars, restrooms, and social spaces. It is our intention to create an entirely new experience for our attendees. Considering these two events represent more than half of our annual fundraising efforts, their continued success and appeal has become the organization’s primary focus for the year.” [HuffPo]
