Picture Lower Manhattan: Wagner Park

Battery Park City

Once upon a time, in the early 1980s, Lower Manhattan was famous for Wall Street and for Creative Time’s Art on the Beach, a popular public art project on landfill excavated from the World Trade Center site. Today that landfill provides the bedrock for Battery Park City, and Lower Manhattan has come alive with vibrant public spaces from river to river. This shot was taken on a recent summer day in Wagner Park. [Photo by Brian DiFeo]
