Fantasy Island
May 31st, 2007

New York Magazine features a look at the five finalists in a competition to remake Governors Island. Five design teams were asked to conceive a new landscape, from 25to 40 acres, for the southern end of the island, and a new 2.2-mile promenade encircling it, and to rethink the open space in the northern historic section, writes Alexandra Lange. The essential question all five teams need to answer is, Why have this park?

The magazine characterizes the five plans with its own names:
The Grid
The Necklace
The Path
The Shell
The Nest

It is still unclear what the end product will look like, but as the article notes, it seems that at least something may finally happen in the near future.
