Title:The New West Side: A Neighborhood Assessment of the Hudson Yards
Author(s):Riordan, Cara
Contributor(s):Edwards, Mary M.
Subject(s):neighborhood redevelopment
Geographic Coverage:New York, New York
Abstract:The Hudson Yards neighborhood of Manhattan extends roughly from 30th Street to 42nd Street, encompassing around 360 acres of underutilized space on the West Side. As the last undeveloped area of Manhattan consumed by vacant lots and open rail yards, the rezoning of 2004 has allowed the neighborhood to transform with higher density and infrastructure improvements. The new Hudson Yards neighborhood will rely heavily on the Hudson Yards Redevelopment by The Related Companies. The development of thirteen skyscrapers, a shopping center, a cultural shed, school, and park will act as the catalyst for growth. To fully understand how the Hudson Yards Redevelopment will impact the entire neighborhood, its citizens, and the economy- it is necessary to explore the character of the west side both historically and as it exists today. This report will analyze the historical and current character of the neighborhood, zoning amendments to allow development, demographic and psychographic data, and economic and physical development of the new Hudson Yards neighborhood.
