BATTERY PARK CITY

NEW YORK, NY

Multi sensory tables – designed as part of a comprehensive Signage Master Plan – introduce the six million sq. ft. site and its renowned Public Art Program.

For the benefit of non-sighted visitors, the sculptures that can easily be touched are identified on the tactile maps. A raised skyline highlights key landmarks along the Hudson River.

Segments of Raynes Rail frame the glass slabs, and give additional information with Braille and audio messages.
