Beside the river is a six-acre park, designed by the noted landscape architect Paul Friedberg, which incorporates a variety of activities: a boardwalk and a boat dock at the water’s edge, a large lawn for public events, intimate gardens, and waterfalls and fountains, as well as hard surfaces near a historic structure that is turned into a restaurant pavilion, and new retail buildings that create a small festival marketplace.
“Each one of these piers covers five acres,” my companion, landscape architect Michael Van Valkenburgh, tells me, “that’s the size of Bryant Park.”
