The far west end of Dyckman Street, along the Hudson River, is now home to the popular concert venue La Marina, but if a proposed 1960’s development had been built you wouldn’t recognize the place today.
This never-constructed project, seen in renderings housed in the New York Municipal Archives, was to have been a grand riverfront complex.
Welcome to “Marina City, NYC.”
These 1964 renderings by architectural and engineering firm Kelly and Gruzen depict three massive residential towers and a modern marina.
One can almost imagine New Yorkers sipping cocktails on a sun-splashed terrace somewhere on the sprawling property.
But “Marina City, NYC” was never to be.
