Resilient. Resplendent. Real. This week marks the opening of New York City’s newest waterfront park, with its “island”, tidal marshes and trails, award-winning art, and a dramatic cantilevered overlook with spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline. This collaborative park design effort of SWA/Balsley and WEISS/MANFREDI has culminated in an extraordinary place where infrastructure, landscape, architecture and art are fused for maximum public benefit. The project is a continuation of the park’s adjacent phase I, which opened in 2013. Read more.
