... at 36th Street, a cafe/concession stand
already is in the works...the Hudson Yards/Hell's Kitchen BID, formed just weeks ago, likely will be active in the City's RFP
and selection process.
Paving for the winding sidewalk has begun, and the Dickensian light posts
that line it already are up.
This may look like the beginnings of a streetlight, but it's actually an art installation
designed by James Carpenter Design Associates. The installation will be 50 feet tall and will have 20 light sources
, so both the pole and the surrounding ground will be canvases for the light show.
Just south of 35th Street, the 7 train's northern exit
is taking shape. To the left of these stairs, four escalators
will take passengers 40 feet down to the turnstiles, and then another set of escalators will go another 80 feet to the platform, which will stretch two blocks
to the station's southern entrance at the foot of Moinian's 3 Hudson Blvd.
...To create rolling hillsides
, geofoam is cheaper than real dirt ... Just stack a few tiers of foam like steps
, cover with sand to make an even slope, and put down some soil.
The southern 7 train entrance, just south of 34th, gives a closer glimpse at what the finished product
will look like. ... the 7 train stop at Hudson Boulevard is designed to handle 30,000 people an hour.
The park from 33rd to 34th shows off the almost finished product
