Hudson Park & Boulevard
New York City, NY United States | 2021
Opened on December 9, 2021, the area beneath the Brooklyn Bridge is a flexible public plaza space that adds two acres of parkland and links the park sections to the southern piers, a crucial connection point that enhances the flow of pedestrian traffic in the Park.
Named in honor of Emily Warren Roebling, who is known for her work ensuring the completion of the Brooklyn Bridge, this final section of the Park pays tribute to the rich history of the Bridge.
Named in honor of Emily Warren Roebling, who is known for her work ensuring the completion of the Brooklyn Bridge, this final section of the Park pays tribute to the rich history of the Bridge. The Plaza features a large hardscaped area designed with concrete pavers that echo the pattern and engineering of the above Bridge and is surrounded by landscaped trees, lawns, and benches.
This project also includes the installation of over one hundred protective bollards for enhanced pedestrian safety as well as curved plant rails to protect the extensive plantings.
Having created the Master Plan for the Park, as well as the design for several of the individual projects, the Architect was well aware of the need for a system to provide the long-term corrosion protection and aesthetics for the steel components and specified a duplex system of hot-dip galvanizing with a powder coat finish.
