The highly anticipated second section of the High Line Park will open next week in NYC to what’s bound to be a flurry of excitement. Back in 2009, just as the park was first inaugurated, we were on site for a sneak peek of the stellar transformation that gave way to an incredible public space built on the remains of an abandoned rail system. Check out our video ahead of the High Line, with exclusive interviews with the design team including Lead Designer and Landscape Architect James Corner of James Corner Field Operations and architect Ricardo Scofidio of Diller Scofidio + Renfro who made this stunning new park possible. And stay tuned for more – we’ll be ready to hit up the second section of the High Line Park next week when it opens, camera in tow!
