Performed for New York City Office of Parks and Recreation, this park is named after Elizabeth H. Berger, civic leader of lower Manhattan who advocated for expansion of the park. Elizabeth Berger helped with the reimagining of Lower Manhattan after the 9/11 attacks and helped both businesses and residents recover from Hurricane Sandy.
The reconstruction of the park consisted of closing the slip road between two smaller parks to create one larger plaza with plantings, a lawn mound, and seating. DMB installed granite curbs, built stone walls and retaining walls, installed new coping stones, removed, salvaged and reset existing coping stones to maintain the aesthetic of the park and installed stone piers. Logistics were a large factor in this project, as this beautiful park sits just outside of the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel.
