World Trade Center:  Lower Manhattan gets a living wall…literally

The new Liberty Park in Lower Manhattan has an unusual feature. PANYNJ Portfolio’s Lenis Rodrigues and Rudy King report that the 336–foot long, 25-foot high “Living Wall” at the park turns the walls of the Vehicle Security Center into something unique and beautiful.

The wall has 826 panels that contain more than 22,000 plants – Baltic ivy, common periwinkle, Japanese spurge, wintercreeper, coral bells and golden star. All do well in partial shade. An internal irrigation system waters the plants and small gutters catch the excess.
