Project Overview

The Metropolitan Museum of Art has launched a complete reconstruction of its four-block-long plaza along Fifth Avenue—one of New York City's iconic outdoor spaces. The Museum's new gateway will feature: contemporary fountains, trees and aerial hedges, new granite paving, seating for the public, and enhanced lighting to illuminate the historic facade at night.

The redesign of the Museum's plaza is scheduled for completion in fall 2014. Read more about the project.
