Three Years Ago In TreeHugger: Take The High Line
We first showed the High Line, which "uses an existing structure to turn industrial
leftovers green, and the initial plan includes a beach and an amphitheater/cinema, all elevated three stories above street level. The project, scheduled to be completed by spring 2006, opens a new
pedestrian path between West 34th Street and the Meatpacking District, making travel by foot a much more pleasant option. With sustainability a key concept of the design, the High Line is being conceived as an organic park that will change along with the growth of both plants and public usage."
It's not quite there yet...
According to the Friends of the High Line, it is on schedule and on budget to open in 2008.
