Public art is an integral component of Hudson River Park. The Park’s design process has included the creation and installation of place-specific public sculpture in a number of locations. In addition, the Park also proudly hosts two public memorials that were carefully planned to be integrated into the Park landscape, as well as other permanent installations that enhance the Park environment.

Hudson River Park’s Apple Garden, located at Charles St. in the Village, is the home of The Apple (2004). Designed by Stephan Weiss, the late husband of renowned fashion designer Donna Karan, this bronze piece is part of his Larger than Life series and honors New York City by symbolizing the city’s heart and the core of life.

The Apple is nine feet tall and weighs three tons and sits atop a circular bronze bench supported by apple cores. Park patrons can sit here and enjoy the beautiful waterside garden, which was originally designed and funded by the Garden Club of America — New York Chapter.
