High Line is Open in NYC Jun 9, 2009

After months of working on this urban-renewal project, the City of NYC has opened High Line Park to the public. Really amazing use of the old elevated subway line. It seems like a long long time ago that Diller Scofidio + Renfro won the design competition. But it’s finally open!

If you’re unfamiliar with the project, head over to theHighline.org site. Attached are a few details I really love and one of the winning design renderings.

    You won’t gap that bench.

    Those benches are strongly reminiscent of the Pentagon Memorial (Julie Beckman, Keith Kaseman), and I like them here. Can’t wait to come back to NY and see it in person.

    Only two word I could says about that; Fucking Fantastic!

    we have some unusued elevated railway line in east London that could greatly benefit from that.
