Stuyvesant High School is a New York City public high school located in Battery Park, NY. Stuyvesant High School has an enrollment of nearly 3,000 students and specializes in mathematics and science studies. In 1992, Stuyvesant High School moved from a building on East 15th Street in New York City to a new construction building in Battery Park, NY. Battery Park is a 25-acre public park located on the Southern point of Manhattan Island in New York City. The new building offers students an innovative learning environment and includes state of the art classrooms, athletics and a sky lit cafeteria. However, a concern for school officials was the dangerous walk for students at the intersection of West Street and Chambers Street where the school is located. The intersection is a high volume traffic area and is extremely dangerous to students going to and from school. The school district decided to invest in a $10 million dollar project to build the Tribeca Bridge that would provide students with safe access to the school. The school district was looking for a material that would be slip resistant against outside elements to provide a safe walking area, long lasting and require minimal maintenance.
