West Side Highway
New York City, New York
The West Side Highway (officially the Joe DiMaggio Highway) is a mostly surface section of New York State Route 9A (NY 9A) that runs from West 72nd Street along the Hudson River to the southern tip of Manhattan in New York City. It replaced the West Side Elevated Highway, built between 1929 and 1951, which was shut down in 1973 due to neglect and lack of maintenance, and was dismantled by 1989. The current highway was complete by 2001, but required some reconstruction due to damage sustained in the 9/11 attacks. It uses the surface streets that existed before the elevated highway was built. Thousands of tourists, joggers, bikers, and commuters travel the West Side Highway every day.
Selux Corral Columns and Bollards were installed at the West Side Highway, located across from the Jacob Javitz Convention Center on the downtown New York riverside. The columns gracefully illuminate the terminal as well as riverwalk attractions.
