Brookfield Place, formally known as the World Financial Center, is a complex of office towers, high-end retail, and restaurants located opposite One World Trade Center. The Winter Garden, a huge and beautiful atrium stand as the center piece, with large glass windows facing West, looking out on to the North Cove - where many outlandishly large luxury yachts preen for the masses - and further out to the Hudson and New Jersey. Large open space links the walkways between Battery Park City and Hudson River Park. In warm weather restaurants open out-door seating, and the area proves to be an excellent spot to soak up rays and watch the city drift by. Great place to have a drink and watch the sunset. While home to the financial powerhouses Amercian Express and Merrill Lynch, as well as a few small boutique Investment Banks, the real draw is as destination spot for dining , shopping and entertainment. Concerts are held outdoors in warm weather, and in the Winter Gardens in the winter. Holiday events and ice skating are popular in the winter.

Winter Installation by Reyna Noriega

Each year, Brookfield Place features a winter themed installation on its glass exterior. This year, artist Reyna Noriega has designed a vibrant and unique vinyl on display on Brookfield Place’s façade on Vesey Street, the Waterfront Plaza and West Street. There is also a complimentary design feature... [ + ]d in the Winter Garden. On display until March 2021.

About Reyna Noriega:
Reyna Noriega is a Miami-based Afro-Latina visual artist, author, and educator who works across a variety of mediums, from graphic design, to painting, digital illustration, and photography. Through simplified shapes and forms in bold and vibrant shades, she portrays figures of people of color, architectural spaces, and landscapes. She helps women to create inclusive, forward-thinking businesses and brands and combines her visual art with writing. In 2019, she notably published a collection of poems entitled In Bloom.

Her multidisciplinary practice is devoted to highlighting and uplifting women and to helping them heal and find happiness. With layers of paint and pixels, Noriega offers a window into her life and those of all women, as she tells stories inspired by her culture and experiences, in which women can recognize themselves, feel represented, and empowered.

Noriega received her BA in Psychology from Florida International University, with minors in Art and English. Over the course of the next four years, she taught graphic design and visual arts in a public high school and developed her passion and ability to teach, motivate, and inspire. She further refined her skill set as a creative director, public and motivational speaker, before becoming a full-time illustrator in 2018.
