High Line - Moynihan Connector

The High Line – Moynihan Connector won a Merit Award from the New York Chapter of the American Institute of Architects as part of the AIANY + ASLA Transportation + Infrastructure Design Excellence Awards, which celebrates exceptional transportation and infrastructure projects. It also recently won a Merit Award from The New York Chapter, American Society of Landscape Architects, which recognizes excellence in landscape architecture.

Designed with Field Operations, the High Line – Moynihan Connector is composed of two bridges that work together to integrate nature into New York City’s Midtown infrastructure and urban fabric. It forms the final link in a chain of pedestrian pathways from Penn Station to Hudson Yards and the High Line to the West Village. The seamless, fully accessible Connector takes the form of an elevated, 600-foot linear park that creates an episodic urban journey from the contemporary spaces of Midtown West to the verdant gardens and historic structure of the High Line.

The project is part of a long-standing vision to create safer, more enjoyable pedestrian access, connect people to transit, and seamlessly link public open spaces and other community assets in the neighborhood.
