Visitors to New York now have a new attraction to visit on what will be an already packed itinerary.
Constructed on the Hudson River, New York has unveiled it’s newest park. Little Island @ Pier 55 is a 2.4 acre playground with trails and an ampitheatre called the ‘The Amph’ that can seat 687 guests. Little Island boasts over 350 species of trees, shrubs and flowers along with a lawn area called ‘The Glade’.
The building of Little Island took over seven years with funding primarily through Barry Diller and the Diller-Von Furstenberg Family Foundation through an extraordinary philanthropic gift to the Hudson River Park.
Due to limit visitor numbers reservations must be made online. The park is open daily from 06.00 until 01.00. Timed entry is from 12.00 and up until that time the capacity of the park will be closely monitored.
Arial views make it look like a computer game that you maintain and grow but what a unique addition to the ‘Big Apple’.
