To each his own. I think the church will add a unique and unexpected quality to the park.

Since they're not making good use of the southwest corner anyway, and considering the unsightly ventilation structure, why not bring back Tall Ships to the WTC directly across the street from its original location? The new view would allow diners to actually see tall ships...



The statue can be easily moved.

What exactly is the purpose of Liberty Park? It doesn't look people-friendly in any way, and I dunno why I'd want to climb a bunch of steps to be in a non-descript plaza. For tourists to snap pics of the WTC, I guess?

It's better than having a concrete roof for the VSC; they're just using the available space for more green space, which is always welcomed. Also, there is a ramp on the NE corner instead of stairs.

The downplayed but primary purpose of Liberty Park is to serve as a glorified extension for the old South Bridge, now Liberty Bridge. Had the bridge been destroyed on 9/11 and not rebuilt, I'm not confident that Liberty Park would have ever been built. For the people coming from the WFC, there's no need to climb up any steps or ramps.

When and if Five World Trade is ever built, it will have a direct walk out link to Liberty Park on its 2nd or 3rd floor lobby ...

Its also of course the home of St. Nicholas Church ...

It functions as an extension of the 9/11 Memorial also ...

It could also be the case that it was the result of consultation with surrounding communities (particularly Battery Park and those who would have preferred the site not be redeveloped, commercially).

I can imagine they would have make a lot of demands, regarding park space...

I think this park is okay. It's still better than the Trump Tower "public garden".

It's a done deal, the PANYNJ decided to go ahead and relocate the Sphere to the west of the church once construction is done.

That's not the Sphere. That's in Ohio.

Where is P.C. Hoofstraat? This is an NYC thread, not Amsterdam. Please be somewhat more clear.

The title of the thread kind of gives you a clue. The World Trade Center Vehicle Security Center. Like the High Line, New York has turned what would have been an ugly cement slap roof for the center into a glorious park! Also a home for the church destroyed on 9/11 St. Nicholas Church! Futhermore, now home for Fritz Koenig's 'The Sphere'! Talk about turning lemons into lemonade!
