Social distancing at Domino Park – New York

We are loving New York’s response to outdoor social distancing at Domino Park, located in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighbourhood. The waterfront park is one of the first in the city to devise a way for implementing social distancing by six feet (1.8 metres) – a procedure recommended by the CDC and government to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus.
The design comprises a series of white circles applied with chalk paint onto a plot of artificial grass. They mark out circles for groups or individuals to sit inside. Opened to the public in 2018, Brooklyn’s Domino Park is a quarter-mile waterfront park designed by James Corner Field Operations and built by Two Trees. The park offers a number of unique features such as an extension of river street, which used to abruptly stop on grand street; effectively walling off the community and residents that live in the area to the east river. The continuation made possible by Domino Park provides a direct access route to the waterfront with views of Manhattan’s iconic skyline.
