Sundberg Photographs the Hills on Governors Island

David Sundberg toured the construction site on Governors Island recently and came back with some of the first images we’ve seen of the Hills, a new portion of the park designed by West8.

Governors Island has long been a story of re-used materials: The southern end of the island was made of fill from the excavation of the Lexington Avenue subway early in the 20th Century. These new hills are created from rubble from the old Coast Guard housing units that were razed after the island was purchased by New York City from the Federal government.

While the project won’t be open until next spring, you can see more of David’s images in his Governors Island Portfolio.
