The day was spent along the west and river side of the Manhattan island.
Moving from pier to pier, it was an interesting experience to be walking on just a long span of land that can be perceived as "fake". As we discussed in class most of the riverside piers, parks, and travel routes were not original to the coastline of the city but rather built with access material taken when the subway transit system was being put forth.
The area that seemed to "hide" this most impressively was Chelsea's Cove at Pier 62; between 25th and 22nd street.
The naturalistic aesthetic of the space truly distracts you from the fact that the entire area is fabricated.
The series of transitional photographs that are displayed in the graphic above; are aimed to mimic the trail taken through the space.
The space itself had opportunity for direct linear passages but the as the user, I ended up have to make a few quick turns to navigate from cove to pier, hence the abrupt turns displayed in the graphic.
