An in-the-know Reddit user spilled these beans yesterday: conceptual renderings of a Major League Soccer stadium for Pier 40. (We spotted 'em via Gothamist.) Though discussion of an MLS stadium for NYC has shifted to focus on Queens and the Bronx, Pier 40 was in the running enough to generate these renderings at one point. Of course, Pier 40 is dealing with major financial troubles and repair needs of its own, so it might not be ready to turn its thoughts to professional sports just yet.
