Wikipedia Description: Hudson Park and Boulevard
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Hudson Park and Boulevard is a greenway and boulevard in Hell's Kitchen, Manhattan in New York City, being built as part of the Hudson Yards Redevelopment Project. It lies between 10th and 11th Avenues. When complete, it will be 4-acre-long (1.6 ha), six-block-long north-south, and run between 33rd and 39th Streets. The boulevard will be in the center of the park when complete. Construction will be in two phases; the first phase, located between 33rd and 36th Streets, was under construction from 2012 to August 2015. The second phase has no timeline. The total cost of the project is more than $30 million.
In the 1930s, there was a historical proposal to build a street in the middle of the block between 10th and 11th Avenues, running from 34th to 42nd Streets within roughly the same place as the current Hudson Boulevard.

This name was still in use as recently as 2017, although there are no street signs for it.
In January 2005, the New York City Council approved the rezoning of about 60 blocks from 28th to 43rd Streets, creating the neighborhood of Hudson Yards; the need for a park in the area was seen when Hudson Yards was being planned.
The park and boulevard was developed concurrently with the New York City Subway's 7 Subway Extension to 34th Street. The park contains the two entrances to the 34th Street station. The first entrance is located between 33rd and 34th Streets, and a second entrance is between 34th and 35th Streets, in the park.
Phase one of the park's layout, led by Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates, was finished in January 2012. Construction began in January 2012. Since the boulevard was brand-new, it w ...More...

That's it so far!
Partially Reviewed: Rough draft. I've gone through these pictures once, removing the worst ones, some duplication, etc. I usually take sequences of 4 or 5 pictures at a time and there are lots of near duplicates. I'll be doing a final review later which will cull the pictures down some. To be honest though, I'm way behind on doing final reviews.
