Stroll through South Cove
South Cove is a collaboration between artist Mary Miss, landscape architect Susan Child, and architect Stan Eckstut. It opened in 1988, on the Esplanade, between First Place and Third Place. This 3-acre public art installation contains winding walkways, views of the Harbor, and "incorporates natural materials, plantings, constructed elements, and the water and sky themselves to create a beautiful and very moving environment."
The artist's vision was for the public to be able to access the Hudson River Waterfront.
What can you do there?
- Take art classes
- Take in the foliage
- Climb on top of boulders
Or just enjoy the wonderful view of one of Battery Park City’s most popular destinations.
