With the news that a ferry slip is coming to the 69th Street Pier after a hiatus of over 20 years, we decided this week to look back at the pier’s earlier days.

In this 1969 photo, from the files of this newspaper, one can see children playing in the water adjacent to the rather rickety pier, people walking, fishing or just sitting and enjoying the view – which was as spectacular then as it is now. One thing you no longer see on the pier but which is visible in the photo are motor vehicles.

The building sitting on the pier is also long gone.
