The railroad flat- an icon of Manhattan's history that has dissipated on this particular site due to the construction of the Manhattan Bridge. The bridge creates a field that is so powerful that nothing seems to be able to exist under it. The desire is to create another field rooted from the memory of the site so that the space under the bridge can be reborn. The railroad flat is the field.
