The Financial District just got a lot more green - and we're not talking about money.
Liberty Park, the Financial District's own Highline-esque elevated park, officially opened up on June 29th.
The park, a one-acre green space 25-feet up in the air, will be open from 6 a.m to 11 p.m from now on.
Liberty Park boasts fantastic views of the 9/11 Memorial, and a 336-foot-long vertical garden, which they will be calling the "living wall".
The park is also planning on featuring a Greek Orthodox shrine at some point.
Do we think Liberty Park will compete with our beloved High Line?
Probably not, but it's definitely an awesome new spot to check out.
If we're being honest, we don't spend enough time down in NYC's FiDi - mainly because none of us work on Wall Street.
But at least now we have an opportunity to trek down there to check out Liberty Park, get a glimpse of the 9/11 Memorial without having to wait on a ridiculously long line, and probably get some Shake Shack afterwards because, hey, why not?[via Time Out] [Feature Image Courtesy Instagram]
