Battery Park

Located in the World Financial Center Plaza in Battery Park City, stainless steel benches, fencing and sun shade structures collaborate to provide modern design elements to a historic landmark in lower Manhattan.   12 blocks of streetscape were developed to improve pedestrian safety and comfort as well as rising national security concerns in the aftermath of 9/11.

Battery Park
