lower manhattan improvements
Location: NEW YORK, NY

The Alliance for Downtown New York, Inc. selected Nancy Owens Studio LLC to reinvigorate and celebrate five public spaces in Lower Manhattan: Bowling Green Park, Trinity Plaza, Edgar Street Triangle, Nassau Street Pedestrian Mall, and the NYPD Downtown Center. A unifying gesture of seasonal color brought this disparate group of sites together and created a sense of vibrancy. The color red was introduced with masses of red geraniums, red tulips and red site furnishings. Geraniums, more commonly associated with European streetscapes and traditional American settings are given a new twist in the distinctly urban environment of Lower Manhattan.
