EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS: Inhabitat Visits New York City’s Future Freshkills Park!
Inhabitat recently toured the future site of Freshkills Park, a reclaimed landfill in New York City’s Staten Island that is currently being capped and repopulated with native flora and fauna. The reclamation project by James Corner Field Operations will transform what once was the world’s largest landfill into New York’s second largest park, and phase one should open within the next ten years. During our visit, Inhabitat got a glimpse of the panoramic views available from the South and North Mounds, witnessed the return of native wildlife, and got some insight into gas generation and the possible reuse of Department of Sanitation infrastructure. More details and photos after the jump!
