Governor Kathy Hochul today unveiled designs for the new High Line – Moynihan Connector, an elevated path that will connect the High Line at 30th Street to Moynihan Train Hall through the new Manhattan West public plaza on 31st Street and Dyer Avenue.

We’re excited to be one of the first projects announced by Governor Hochul and are so pleased to partner with the new Governor to advance this along with Empire State Development and Brookfield Properties. The project is moving forward on a rapid timeline and is expected to be finished by spring of 2023. The Moynihan Connector is composed of a pair of two bridges: the Woodlands Bridge, a heavily planted section that extends from the eastern edge of the High Line Spur along 30th Street, and the Timber Bridge that goes north along Dyer Avenue.
