Gallery: VIDEO: High Line Section Two Opens in NYC!

 

Section two of New York City’s High Line Park opened a couple of years ago to great acclaim, and Team Inhabitat were among the first to catch a glimpse of this amazing new green space! The High Line is a renovated train track that has been turned into a gorgeous greenway in the sky on the West side of Manhattan near the Hudson River. Conceived of by Friends of the High Line and executed by James Corner Field Operations and Diller, Scofidio and Renfro for the City of New York, the High Line is one of our favorite urban spaces. Check out our video for an exclusive tour of the High Line by our own Jill Fehrenbacher — which includes behind-the-scenes tidbits from the minds who created the project. Even if you’re not in New York City, our video shows you the sweeping views, gorgeous greenery and inspired design behind this incredible urban park..

    I’d be curious to know the economic impact of the High Line project; property value increases, retail traffic, new building starts and impacts on the adjacencies.

    I suspect a way to boost the impact of the High Line would be to streetscape and vegetate the lateral viewsheds with some similarly inventive experiential landscape installations.
