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.

Pamela Rosenkranz, Old Tree via The High Line

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.

Opening to the public in Spring 2023, Pamela Rosenkranz’s Old Treefollows Simone Leigh’s Brick House in 2019 and Sam Durant’s Untitled (drone) in 2021. Old Tree was one of 80 artworks proposed for the third and fourth commissions, shared with the public online in 2020.

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.
