Ethical Adventures: Little Island

August 20, 2021 @ 10:30 am - 1:30 pm

UPDATE: Instead of meeting at the Society, we’ll meet at the park entrance at 10:30. The Island has already become quite popular, with long waiting lines. Please prepare for hot weather.

Little Island is the recently opened, privately subsidized (with $260 million from Barry Diller) installation that replaced the old Pier 54 on the Hudson at 15th Street. The arresting structural design is by Englishman Thomas Heatherwick, now well known for Vessel, the “adult jungle gym” that forms the centerpiece of the Hudson Yards development. Landscaping is by Signe Nielson, the best-known landscape architect in New York, who created the master plan for Hudson River Park and many other projects. Little Island also contains performance venues and food sites. Admission is free until noon, $10 after.

RSVP by August 10: Bob, rbumcrot65@gmail.com or Howard, howard@rosesquared.com. Rain date: Friday, Aug. 20
