The Rooftop at Pier 17
the mixed-use building 
by SHoP Architects that’s 
helped revitalize New 
York’s Seaport district, 
has been voted the best 
new concert venue. With 
the pandemic, however, 
this summer’s series was 
cancelled. Rethinking the 
prime outdoor venue, 
property operator Howard Hughes Corporation partnered with Relevent to create The Greens, 28 14-square-foot mini lawns, each with cabana-style lounge chairs, an umbrella, food and drink service, and a USB port, that can be reserved for 90 minutes. “The aesthetic we leaned into was ‘ideal picnic,’” Relevent president Claire Annas Keaveney says. The Greens is open through October.
