Where we're building our park demo in September...
Here are a few photos from our site visit to the abandoned warehouse on Delancey Street, where we are planning to build our full-scale park mock-up this September.
The space was formerly used as a community market but is now an entirely raw space: no electricity, no climate control. It feels very exciting to be inside the space and we left energized to continue planning our transformation.
Check out in particular the old "Orchard Essex Meat Market" sign-- it's inspiring to think about how we can bring something modern and new to a site with such rich New York city history.
Stay tuned for more updates as we move ahead with design and engineering... and keep spreading the word, to help us make this demo even more brilliant.
