Freshkills Park and the Staten Island Advance recently had a photography competition aiming to feature the transformation of Freshkills Park from landfill to nature reserve. The above gallery shows the winners of the contest.
Starting September 22nd, the next time you take the Staten Island Ferry, make a stop inside St. George Ferry Terminal at the Staten Island Culture Lounge. There’s a photography exhibit, “Freshkills: Landscape in Motion” that examines the changing topography of Freshkills as it evolves from a landfill into the largest park developed by New York City since the 19th century.
Check out the Freshkills Park Alliance for more on the 2,200 acre park which should be completed in 2036.
