Project for Public Spaces - Exploring Riverside Park
This blog was created as a part of a joint internship program between Project for Public Spaces and Urban Vision in Mumbai, India. Photos and text by Nikita Malviya and Himadri Panchal. Riverside Park in New York City is a beautiful linear public space that bustles with activity. It is located along the Hudson River on Manhattan's western shore, and it covers an area of approximately 330 acres. With densely populated residential neighborhoods just adjacent to it, Riverside Park is a well-loved destination for leisure and recreation. The park itself is split into various sections that flow seamlessly into each other while still retaining their distinct character and unique mix of activities.
