Five Principles for Greenwich South

Brooklyn-Battery Market Park


As part of the strategic framework Five Principles for Greenwich South, Market Park proposes an urban amenity above the multi-lane Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel. A hole in the heart of Greenwich South, the tunnel entrance divides the neighborhood, prohibiting safe pedestrian and vehicular traffic, and preventing a natural connection between the World Trade Center 9/11 Memorial and Battery Park. Market Park would transfer unused air rights over the tunnel entry to adjacent buildable sites. By accessibly bridging over the tunnel entry, the park and public market establishes a sense of place and unites the neighborhood.
