As the central plaza in the heart of Roosevelt Island, this public space is used for large gatherings such as Roosevelt Island Day and small passive seating areas.  We worked with an active community to develop a program to revitalize the plaza and a large barren  landscape  area .  The plaza is now surrounded by  year round plantings and the newly landscaped garden is lush with perennials, flowers, ornamental trees, features sculpture by local artist and all  arranged around a variety of seating areas.
