The forthcoming renovation of Pier 57 on West 15th Street, which is scheduled to open to the public in 2015, features some nifty plans: a spacious rooftop park, permanent restaurants and a 425,000-square-foot shopping forum built from salvaged shipping containers. (You can sorta get a sense of what it might look like from the photos of the unfinished space above.)


Right now, you can visit the open-air waterside mini-mall at a temporary installation on the southern portion of the pier, the Marina at P57. For a taste of things to come, you can browse wares from boutiques housed in some of those recycled storage units, such as Soludos Espadrilles and North Brooklyn Collective. Snacks include smoked meat by Fletcher's Brooklyn Barbecue and frozen treats from Van Leeuwen Ice Cream.


Starting this weekend, there's another reason to check out the space: 9/500, a weekly afternoon music and art series named after Basquiat's “Downtown 500” artist group. The showcase will highlight nine up-and-coming young performers from NYC; this Saturday, enjoy riverside jazz from the Corey Garcia Quartet. The free 9/500 series goes down from 5–7pm every Saturday until August 24.
