A rendering of the Pier 55 park
Plans for a floating public park in New York City appear to be in jeopardy.
Last week, the New York Times reported that a U.S. District Court ruled in favor of opponents of plans to turn Pier 55 along the Hudson River into a 2.7-acre public park.

“In my view the decision makes it virtually impossible for Pier 55 to proceed,” Richard D. Emery, a lawyer for groups opposing the park, told The New York Times.
Originally proposed in 2014, the park, designed by Thomas Heatherwick and led by a group including media mogul Barry Diller and fashion designer Diane Von Furstenberg, would be 10,000 square feet and include a 700-seat amphitheatre for live performances and art. Total cost was expected to be in the $130 million range.
