A new link has emerged to connect Penn Station to Manhattan’s reimagined West Side: the High Line – Moynihan Connector. The new Moynihan Connector is actually comprised of two bridges, the Timber Bridge and the Woodland Bridge, which offer a unique pedestrian experience. Together they form a 600-foot-long linear park extending out of Manhattan West’s public plaza and down Dyer Avenue to 30th Street, where it links up with the High Line.
The new extension brings the famed walkway closer to Hudson Yards and Penn Station. The recently completed Moynihan Connector is a joint endeavor by SOM and James Corner Field Operations—the latter an original member of the High Line design team. It was led by Empire State Development, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, Brookfield Properties, and Friends of the High Line.
