Created by French sculptors, Frederic-Auguste Bartholdi and Alexandre-Gustave Eiffel, The Statue of Liberty commemorates the long-lasting friendship between France and the USA.

The Vessel

Opened on March 15, 2019, The Vessel was built as part of the Hudson Yards Redevelopment Project. This inspirational structure, created by Thomas Heatherwick, was designed as an interactive piece for the public.

One World Trade Center

The One World Trade Center was created as a memorial for the lives lost as a result of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Since 2002, there have been several designs considered for the redevelopment; architect David Child’s design was chosen as the final plan.
