With all  he new funding-maybe The Hudson River Park Trust can take their design moratorium off for  future boathouses and boat storage now. 
Their great vision states there will be no more new boat storage and no more boathouses built  on the Hudson River in the future.
And Here is the Trust typical event space rules for Pier 26.... No blankets or lawn chairs,  can't bring your own food or beverage, no backpacks, no cameras, no pets....
Expensive admission... 
Nice Park.
