Photo of the Day: Hudson Boulevard Park, NYC

The physical landscape of New York City feels like it has been changing more in the past four years than it had in the prior forty. Much of this was a result of initiatives or projects started in the administration of the prior mayor, Mike Bloomberg. 

Perhaps the most visible manifestation of this—at least, for visitors to the city who may concentrate on Manhattan—is the massive Hudson Yards project.

Much of this latter development will, when completed, consist of office, residential and retail space. But there is park space as well—in this case, Hudson Boulevard Park, located between West 33rd and West 36th Streets, mid-block between 10th and 11th Avenues.  It is being maintained by the Hudson Yards/Hell's Kitchen Alliance.

There were few people in the park on the Saturday afternoon a week ago when I passed through and took this picture. However, the massive construction going on in the area does not currently lend itself to such a group. When the construction cranes depart and residents begin living in the area, people should be out here in droves.
