The Hills on Governors Island


The Hills, the new park on Governors Island in New York City, opened on July 29. The park is designed by Dutch firm, West 8 Urban Design and Landscape Architecture and constructed from fill made out of the demolition of  existing buildings to the site, recycled materials and steel slag. Among some of the great features is Slide Hill, which rises forty feet, and has four silver-colored slides of different lengths; one being longest slide in all of New York City.
