east river park
Location: New York, New York
Client: NYC Department of Parks & Recreation
East River Park is a 57-acre parcel situated along the East River between Montgomery and 12th Streets, is one of the most significant open green spaces in lower Manhattan. A comprehensive planning effort with NYC Department of Parks and Recreation involved reconstruction of all major park and promenade areas as well as continuous connections to the existing bikeway to the south and the Stuyvesant Cove Esplanade to the north. The overall design intent was to restore the park's historic integrity, maximize green space, create separation between passive and active use areas and reconstruct the promenade to enhance the waterfront experience for every user.
