The section of East River Park south of Stanton Street is temporarily closed due to construction as part of the East Side Coastal Resiliency Project, which will protect Lower East Side residents and waterfront parks from coastal storms and sea level rise. East River Park remains open north of Stanton Street. For access to open park areas, use entrances at E. Houston Street, 6th St Bridge, or 10th St Bridge. For more information on construction progress, when this section of the park will re-open, please visit the Department of Design and Construction’s City’s East Side Coastal Resiliency Project Updates page.
