Little Island NYC | New Artificial Park in Manhattan | Tourist Attraction and Local Green Spot in NY

Hello Everyone! Welcome back! This video is about brand new park, which opened on May 21st, 2021 in New York City - The Little Island. Little Island covers 2.4 acres (0.97 ha) and is supported by 132 pot-shaped structures suspended above the water, which in turn stand on 280 concrete pilings extending into the riverbed. The tops of the pots range from 15 to 62 feet (4.6 to 18.9 m) above the mean waterline. The installation of the pots was overseen by engineer Arup Group and manufactured in Upstate New York by the Fort Miller Company. The park has various lawns, paths, and plants, which were arranged by landscape architect Signe Nielsen. The plantings and soil were engineered to reduce erosion and were also arranged aesthetically. In addition, Little Island has a small stage and three concession stands, as well as a 687-seat amphitheater. Park hours: 6:00 AM - 1:00 AM (if you visiting this park after 12:00 PM - please make a reservation at https://littleisland.org/)
