A closer look…
The restoration of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train line in NYC into a new public park, has been widely heralded in design circles. Earlier this summer, my husband and I were in NYC and visited the park in person. The park opened in June of this year and it was remarkable to see how many people were actively using the park on a weekday afternoon less than a month after the park had opened.
Friends of the High Line, a nonprofit group, works in partnership with the City of New York to preserve and maintain the historic High Line as an elevated public park.
