Redefining Public Spaces: NYC’s East River Esplanade

Redefining Public Spaces: NYC’s East River Esplanade

New York City continues to improve its waterfront access with beautifully designed, pedestrian-friendly, public spaces.

The striking amount of buzz surrounding the opening of the High Line’s second section has caused another great new public space to be quietly overlooked: The East River Esplanade. This park reflects NYC’s ongoing effort to expand access to its waterfront, commissioning SHoP Architects and landscape architect Ken Smith to re-imagine the space that extends from Pier 11 to  Pier 15. The new Esplanade features native plants, loads of public seating, chess tables, barstools along wide pier railings, ‘get-down’ points to access the water, and an eccentric dog run. Other portions of the Esplanade are expected to open this Fall.
