The Poetry Path is made possible through a partnership with Battery Park City Authority, partners in design and fabrication of the Poetry Path, with additional support from our Outreach Partner, Goldman Sachs.
As part of the celebration of our 10th anniversary at 10 River Terrace, we’re excited to announce the opening of the Poets House Poetry Path in Battery Park City—an immersive public art installation of poetry running from Rockefeller Park’s north end to the marina at Brookfield Place. This installation includes fragments from poems reaching across time, space, and cultures, featuring 50 poets whose work considers the relationships between people, nature, and the urban landscape.
