What to Eat, and What to Avoid, at Little Island – Eater NY

A cynic might complain that Little Island is a calculated part of a tourist runway extending from the Whitney Museum to Hudson Yards via the High Line, intended to strew dollars all along the route and ramp up the value of real estate on either side. But the view of the new 2.4-acre pier-based park was impressive as I approached by a bridge under a massive arch, through which could be seen winding paths and meandering stairways interspersed with colorful flower beds and trees. The pathways wend their way upward, providing dramatic views along the way. Little Island rises to a height of 64 feet on mushroom-shaped pylons at 14th Street, making for one of the more unique sights along the river. As a giant sculpture, it’s a complete success. But what about as a culinary destination?
