The proposal seeks for a way to add a new horizontal layer to Manhattan. An elevated link between towers, separated from traffic and noise, filled with public functions, bicycle lanes and walkways.

Located as a gateway to Brooklyn, Liberty and Staten Island the “New York Billboard” serves as an attractor for Manhattan, as „Manhattan‘s lobby“, from where u get elevated to the new urban level. The spacial program on one hand and parameters like view of surrounding buildings, sustainable aspects and formal questions on the other, the tower should face Manhattans urban fabric horizontally.
