WEST SIDE, Manhattan — New York City is done using Pier 76 as its primary impound location for towed cars in Manhattan, in a move made to prevent millions of dollars in fines from the state.

The area will be instead used for the Hudson River Park redevelopment project.

Instead, the city has set up a temporary location, though that has its own set of challenges and controversies.
