DeLury Square and Fulton Streetscape
Designed for NYC Parks Department.
It is a rare opportunity to build a completely new park in Lower Manhattan, where most construction involves rebuilding existing areas. In this case, the city spent over $5m to obtain land and reconfigured an intersection to create this popular space. The park features a large rock fountain, dense plantings, a lawn area, and plenty of seating for visitors.
We also contributed to the streetscape design for the adjacent Fulton Street, in cooperation with Jon Ernsberger and other designers from NYC’s Parks Department. Mayor Bloomberg made the revitalization of this busy street a high priority, as it connects the World Trade Center on the west with the South Street Seaport in the east. Along the way, Fulton Street links DeLury Square with two other new parks, resulting in a much improved situation for tourists and locals alike.
