Riverwalk Park is the eighth building developed by Related and Hudson as part of the neighborhood’s planned complex.

Amenities at the building include a fitness center and yoga studio, a children’s playroom, party lounge and game room, bike storage, and an attended lobby. And each apartment features views of the Hudson and East Rivers.
Located at 460 Main Street, the building is near the main shopping and dining strip of Roosevelt Island, as well as its riverfront parks and the F subway train. Other transit options include the Tram, the Ferry, the Q102, and the Roosevelt Island Operating Corporation’s red bus.
