New York’s High Line



The High Line in New York City opened last summer to critical and public acclaim. One of the most unusual and stunning new public parks in recent decades, this abandoned elevated railway running through lower Manhattan has been transformed into a public pedestrian greenway. Designed by James Corner Field Operations, with Lisa Tziona Switkin serving as lead designer, as well as architects Diller Scofidio + Renfro, this remarkable urban transformation was spearheaded in 1999 by Robert Hammond and Joshua David, two residents of the High Line’s Chelsea neighborhood.
