FEATURES:
Field Operations pays tribute to Paterson's industrial past with a 7.5-acre suite of outdoor rooms.
A Bronx River brownfield is reborn as a place of rugged beauty.
The High Line has captured the imagination of New Yorkers like no other project in recent memory, but when it opens in a few months, it will be one of several chunks of aging infrastructure in the area to find new life as a public space. The relics of industry that still scatter the region are reborn as elements of parks, and their reuse is representative of larger changes, too: The 19th-century stone raceways in Paterson once powered silk mills, and thus the local economy, and they will soon be put to use as part of the city's plan to develop a heritage tourism industry. In Red Hook, too, where shopping has displaced shipping as the main source of jobs, the Ikea-built Erie Basin Park sits on the old Todd Shipyard. Each of these six projects makes fresh use of a once-obsolete piece of the industrial past, and in so doing, pushes it into the future.
A Greenpoint wastewater treatment plant celebrates its nautical past.
Bergmann Associates remakes a rusting Hudson rail crossing as the world's longest pedestrian bridge.
A new artwork rethinks water access on a post-industrial patch of the Hudson.
