public square
The Public Square will be the new center of the West Side and will host world-class art and events.
Designed by Nelson Byrd Woltz Landscape Architects in collaboration with Thomas Heatherwick, the Public Square is the heart of Hudson Yards’ new retail, residential, commercial and cultural destinations. A central plaza combines a dramatic north entry garden, interactive water features and a monumental sculpture. The bold, seasonally expressive horticulture will dazzle New Yorkers throughout the year.
