NYC LOVE is a celebration of New York City via its iconography, and is located on one of the city’s most popular destinations for tourists and locals alike.

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.
Update December 1, 2022 ~ and the winner is Pamela Rosenkranz ‘Old Tree’, a 25-foot tall sculpture in vivid pink and red. Located on the High Line at 30th Street and 10th Avenue, the Plinth is a landmark destination for major public art that features a rotating program of new monumental commissions.
Old Tree will bring to life mythical archetypes of the tree of life connecting heaven and earth. The tree’s color resembles the branching systems of human organs, blood vessels, and tissue, inviting viewers to contemplate the indivisible connection between humans and nature.
Rosenkranz’s artwork will be installed on the High Line in spring 2023 and will be on view through September 2024. Old Tree opens to the public just ahead of the completion of the Moynihan – High Line Connector later in spring 2023. The location of the Plinth on the High Line’s Spur is adjacent to the forthcoming Connector pathway that will lead visitors over 30th Street and Dyer Avenue towards Moynihan Train Hall.
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced a proposal to extend the High Line in Manhattan to give pedestrians seamless access to the elevated pathway from the recently opened Moynihan Train Hall as part of the 2021 State of the State. As part of a public-private partnership, Brookfield Property Group will partner with Empire State Development, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, and Friends of the High Line to build an L-shaped connection from the 10th Avenue terminus of the High Line to Brookfield’s Manhattan West public space.
