    Compared to this...





    I'd say it's perfect.

    I hear there's plans to replace the ill-fated tunnel between the WFC and WTC with a high viaduct along the BPC waterfront...

    Didn't Libeskind have a circular ramp (aka viaduct for peeps) linking WTC + WFC in his original Master Plan?

    I like the new park, but I think there is a big difference in quality between it and the Hudson River Park sections that are completed. The Trump Park (Riverside park?) seems to have been done on the cheap to some extent and the plantings are kind of mundane and repetitive. It is is an immense improvement over what was there before, but for me it is lacking somethingI can't quire put my finger on.

    Hanging out in the summer by the boardwalks is wonderful. All that sea grass makes me forget I'm in NYC. It feels like Amagansett or Cape Cod.

    I think that having something so large and tall (the elevated) running through it completely changes the scale of everything else in the park making everything seem somewhat small rather than a feeling of openess I think it would have otherwise.

    ...if they were under a giant bridge...

    Anyway, isn't sea grass inappropriate for the Hudson riverfront? It isn't an Atlantic beach...

    As opposed to, say, a manicured lawn?

    It could have had little rock outcroppings to mimic the Palisades. Something more riverine. Hudson-y. They could have even tumbled something down from viaduct level ...

    The section just south of the last finished section is sort of like that - natural trees and plants, and rocks right down to the water. Is this a future part of the park, anyone? There is nothing but creepy camp sites and litter there now.

    Eventually there will be park all the way to 59th St. where the Hudson River Park begins.
