The Chelsea Piers extend along the Hudson River, from the 23rd Street Ferry to West 12th St. and were erected by the city in 1902-07, at a cost of $15,000,000. The first ship to land at the piers was the late Cunard Steamer,, on her maiden trip in 1907. The piers are used by the Cunard Line, French Line, Atlantic Transport Line, Red Star Line, White Star Line, and American Line. Over 2,000,000 passengers arrived and sailed from this pier in 1914.
