Now that Crescent Park is finally open, let the commentary begin. Thoughts from The Times-Pic's art critic, Doug MacCash: "The shadows and architectural severity lend the park a certain existential quality. The monumental burned skeleton of an adjacent wharf remains picturesquely in place at the waterline. Some of the running paths enigmatically dead end into the river. There are towering patches of weeds within sight and graffiti plays across the tank cars that border the landscape on the neighborhood side. As always, the untamed edge of the surging river is an open wound. This is a public space with a certain welcome edginess." [NOLA.com]
