these kinds of creative parkways to relieve the inhabitants of too much concrete! It's a really fine example of how to make a park elegant.

Great shot of the park from above. It captures all three blocks in the foreground on the left side. It looks nice, but not really as green as I had imagined...

Ummmm, as there should be, obviously? haha

It is going to be an extremely well traversed area, if there weren't so much concrete, there'd be lots of dead grass and other plants, this better be a well paved area. I have walked by many times, and it's stunning.

Remember this is a park carved out of formerly industrial area, this is a decidedly significant improvement.

Well that's just the thing. It's called a park (land with plants, trees and grass with paths though it), but looks more like a plaza (paved gathering space with possibly some green planters). It will look better when the trees have grown more of course. Still can't over the fact that they are redeveloping the area and are putting in a road going north/south right next to the 'park' when there's already a bunch of roads cutting right through it already. Just seems so pointless and something that could and should have been avoided.

Why roads along new strip park: good question...

Interesting point about the Hudson Boulevard, East & West. This actual physical implementation's planning start dates back to at least the mid 200Xs. IIRC those plans included a hotel and an auto garage under the park (between 35th & 36th?).

I'm assuming the roadways can trace their existence to those plans.

When this phase of the park opens (1Q?? 2015) at least one of the roadway sections will not be in use because they will not have raised 33rd St up to the level of the new park.

Well, for what it's worth, they appear to have faithfully executed the plan.


HYDC.org

Still, looking at the overhead picture and then looking at this rendering... it's hard to believe it will ever look this lush and expansive. Maybe in 20 years if the trees grow.

Block between 34th/35th

And in the bottom left cerner, a view of whatever excavation work is going on at the 3 Hudson Blvd site/original-access-shaft for the still-not-open #7 subway 34th street station. The access shaft/new excavation STILL has the orange vent pipe coming out of it.

Ya, it does look like they followed through with their plans to the best of their ability. Though I say let's wait until the spring to judge the greenery.

With that crook Sheldon Silver being indicted on corruption charges, I can't help myself but think of the project he helped destroy.

I'm a Jets fan, and outside of winning Super Bowl III I think that move would of been the greatest thing that ever happened to that franchise. I'm pretty bitter about it, and I can see MetLife Stadium from my back porch.

Hudson Boulevard Park SPRING, but not in this photo...

March 10, 2015.
Looking north, I think. The snow should be gone now, not to return till late in 2015 (I hope)

Field Condition took a stroll through the recently opened sections of Hudson Park and Boulevard. Their post is here. A sampling of the pictures is below.
