Fresh Kills, Staten Island

Fresh Kills, Staten Island

former landfill, Fresh Kills Park

DSNY/DPR

West Park’s 545 acres hosts the site’s largest mound, with the West Shore Expressway to the east and the Arthur Kill to the west. An enormous earthwork monument is envisioned atop the mound in remembrance of the September 11 recovery effort that occurred in this location. The park will be set on a vast hilltop wildflower meadow, and the earthwork would be open to the sky and offer spectacular 360–degree views of the region, including a direct line of sight to lower Manhattan.
