Brick building. Terminal. Pier. Boring. NOT SO FAST! Take one look inside the West Village’s Pier 40 and you’ll rethink every old, creepy pier you’ve ever come across.

During the day the field is generally empty, and the soft turf service is perfect for running. Anyone up for a little office lunchtime workout?
