News concerning the redevelopment of New York City’s Hudson Yards has been rather light since the plan to build an Olympic/football stadium evaporated a few years back. The site located on the West Side of Manhattan is adjacent to the Javits Convention Center and the eventual end point for the Highline Park making it a pretty desirable plot of land. Work on the massive 7 train subway extension to the area continues underground but above the rail yard looks pretty much in a state of stasis. But progress seems to be springing back to life again. Recently the US National Endowment for the Arts announced $3 million in grants to go towards urban design projects around the US. $100,000 of that is for a new project at the Hudson Yards called the ‘Culture Shed’.
