High Line-Moynihan Connector (Andrew Frasz) High Line-Moynihan Connector (Andrew Frasz)
On the first day of summer 2023, Governor Kathy Hochul presided over an opening ceremony for the High Line-Moynihan Connector, which connects the High Line to public space surrounding Moynihan Train Hall. The project dates back to January 2021, when it was announced in a State of the State address by then-Governor Cuomo, and the first renderings were revealed in September 2021.

The L-shaped bridge was designed in a collaboration with James Corner Field Conditions and Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, and features two components. The richly landscaped Woodland Bridge runs above West 30th Street and was designed in a way that rainwater can drip down and water the plants. A block-long Timber Bridge made of sustainably sourced Alaskan cedar runs along Dyer Avenue to the Magnolia Court pedestrian plaza in the Manhattan West complex. The Timber Bridge was assembled at street level and craned into place in an incredibly short period of time, and all collaborators were pleased at the speed at which they were able to open the project.
Woodland Bridge High Line
The High Line-Moynihan Connector is the result of a public-private partnership between Friends of the High Line, Empire State Development, and Brookfield Properties. Along with the new bridge, the project included public safety improvements like new signals, lighting, and crosswalks along a previously dangerous stretch near the Lincoln Tunnel. However, as Gothamist put it, “Using a sidewalk to get from Moynihan Train Hall to the West Village is now optional.”

“I am so pleased that two vital components of the West Side's renaissance, the High Line and Moynihan Train Station, are now interconnected” – Senator Chuck Schumer

In addition to walking to Moynihan Train Hall, High Line visitors can walk directly into the Hudson Yards complex. Between Neiman Marcus’ bankruptcy filings, workers’ slow return to the office, and no shortage of dazzling supertalls and luxury boutique buildings that stole the thunder of 15 Hudson Yards and 35 Hudson Yards, some were questioning the wisdom of the mega-development as New York emerged from lockdown. But more recently, it has been thriving. The Sonic Sphere brings a new concert experience to The Shed, and the shops and restaurants of Hudson Yards are bustling on any given day. The Bjarke Ingels Group-designed Spiral is now open; as is the Foster + Partners-designed 50 Hudson Yards, which is gearing up to welcome a spacious new Russ & Daughters outpost. It has reached a point where City Comptroller Brad Lander, a longtime critic of the tax breaks Hudson Yards received, has admitted in a NY1 interview that it is producing more tax revenue than he ever expected.
Local real estate around the High Line and Hudson Yards is also thriving. High-floor apartments at 35 Hudson Yards put up high numbers throughout the spring. Down the street, two units with private pools at the nearby Soori High Line sold for a combined total of $17.6 million in May 2023. On the corner of Eighth Avenue and West 30th Street, 300 West 30th Street is 96% sold in about seven months. In the opposite direction, The Westerley, a new boutique condominium whose listings tout its Hudson Yards proximity, is 78% sold with many closings coming in at or slightly above ask (all sales figures courtesy of Marketproof).
