West Street covered with park

West Street open

Libeskind created two different possible landscape plans. One creates a deck over West Street and covers it with a park, while the other leaves West Street open. In both schemes, Libeskind creates many new parks and public spaces. This map shows the sunken memorial space[marked with a 1], the Wedge of Light [marked with a 2] and September 11 Plaza [marked with a 3]. Libeskind also created spaces called Liberty Street Park [4] and Liberty Plaza [5], as well as the Park of Heroes [6] in the Fulton corridor.
