Untapped New York
Tour the unique architectural elements of Long Island City’s Hunters Point South Park and take in the stunning city views along the waterfront with principal architect Michael Manfredi of Weiss/Manfredi, one of the two firms behind the design. Hunters Point South Park first opened in 2013 with Phase I, an active recreation and gathering area with industrial remnants from the park’s past such as old gantries and railroad tracks incorporated into the design. Phase II, a 5.5 acre addition, opened in the summer of 2018 and was designed for passive recreation in landscapes that are naturalistic. The entire park stretches across 11 acres of waterfront surrounded by water on three sides. On this special tour, Insiders will have the amazing opportunity to hear directly from the park’s architects and learn about what went into the design process including the ideas of resiliency and sustainability which are forefront in the design.
