Other Tenants

Businesses that lease facilities at Pier 70 include Affordable Self Storage, Sims Metal, which operates a scrap metal collection site there, and Delancey Street Foundation, which leases storage facilities.

Pier 70 is also the site of the AM broadcast transmitter and tower for radio station KEST, 1450 AM, a 1000 watt non-directional station. The antenna is located in an open area at the end of 20th Street, and the transmitter is located nearby in a room within Building 21, just to the west of the Noonan building. The transmission line feed goes from the room to the 180 foot tower. KEST moved to the site in 1997.
