Our Summer Photo-Synthesis Winner Soaks up the Sun!

August 23

Our summer Photo-Synthesis entries treated us to some our favorite warm-weather sights—on-the-water adventures, sunny esplanade activity, picnic-perfect piers... This truly is our Park’s most bustling season, and we loved seeing our Park’s hottest days and long, breezy evenings through your lenses!

With more than 1,000 entries, we had our work cut out for us! But in the end, we couldn’t look away from this bold summertime pic of Pier 45 by Instagram fan @nycwestside.

This image is iconic Hudson River Park summer: sunbathers soak up rays on this pier’s ever-popular lawns, the Hudson River sparkles, the city stretches boldly skyward. We love how the warm reds of bricks and picnic blankets complement our Park’s bright blues and greens… in fact, we’d like to step right into the frame and stake out some green beach for ourselves!

Want to see more of your Park at its summertime best? Our stunning array of Honorable Mentions will make you want to soak up every remaining hour of this lively season in Hudson River Park!
