Two years ago today I was back east on a trip with my dad. One of the highlights, among many, was a walk along the High Line in NYC. The High line is a new park atop an elevated rail structure on Manhattan's West Side. It is the most innovative urban reclaimed park I have ever experienced. Built in the 1930's, it carried frieght trains along an area that was defined with factories and warehouses. Nowadays this is where the cool kids play- DVF, The Standard Hotel, Pastis Restaurant among many more. When the trains were replaced by truck transport the High line became desolate, rusty, full of weeds and virtually obsolete. Two dudes began to love this ruin, spotting beauty in its wild abandonment and saw great potential as a new way to experience the city by foot. Along with the help of Mayor Bloomberg and his concern for urban planning, over ten years the project came to life. Now the High Line is a mile long expanse of plants, paths, staircases, art and seating that runs through a transformed west side. It reminds all who visit it the possibilities of urban beauty when creative people get together and make things happen!
