Our Story

As a joint venture of Chelsea Piers and Abigail Kirsch Catering, Pier Sixty, The Lighthouse & Current have become landmarks for special events in New York City. Following the great demand for Pier Sixty after its opening in 1998, the business soon expanded two years later when it opened The Lighthouse on the neighboring pier. In 2015, the company was thrilled to add a state-of-the-art venue, Current, to its family of properties.
