West Park
West Park is characterized by the site’s largest mound, and is bounded by the West Shore Expressway to the east and the Arthur Kill to the west. Set upon a vast hilltop wildflower meadow, the top of West Park will offer spectacular 360-degree views of the region, including a direct sightline to lower Manhattan.  West Park will also provide paths and natural areas.  An earthwork monument, in remembrance of the exhaustive and heroic recovery effort that took place in this location, is proposed for this site.
