Man-made island proposed for New York’s Hudson River


New York architect Eytan Kaufman has drawn up a concept for a man-made island in the Hudson that would serve as a final destination for visitors to the city’s High Line – a former railway track which has been converted to a walkway.

Eytan’s Hub on the Hudson proposal would be adorned with five pyramidal buildings containing an art centre, restaurants and public spaces.

A reflecting pool would sit in the middle of the island, while a circular, elevated walkway would ring the space and connect back to the High Line via a pedestrian bridge.


The architect said his vision was “to create a connection between the High Line and the Hudson River” with the island located around 200m out into the water.
