Here Is New York's Brand New Outdoor Recreation Experience, 'Little Island'

Since the COVID-19 pandemic took the world by storm, outdoor recreation and public activity has been lessened down to very low numbers. But now, the vaccinations are being done and the public might finally have the chance of going back out in public as they were bit by bit. 

To add a better experience at outdoor recreation in the New York City, Heatherwick Studio & Mathews Nielsen Landscape Architects presents their latest project that is now opened to all New Yorkers and everyone who is in town; Little Island. This is a truly amazing creation by these companies that is built upon pillars of concrete which hoists this man made island off the water. Getting their inspiration from the pillars that hold up constructions across rivers which face off severe weather conditions, they went forward with building a park on these pillars. With a lot of varieties of grass and trees, this is a perfect place to relax and enjoy the greenery.

This newest addition to the New York landscape is a wonder that projects the engineering stunts that were pulled off and also a home for many eco based activity, which is not common in the New York city which is very busy. We have listed some pictures of this amazing construction. Scroll down to check them out and do not forget to comment down you thoughts about it, in the comments sections below!
