A Park In The Sky: The High Line

Robert Hammond took it upon himself (with others) to make use of the abandoned 30’s High-Line running through New York, and wanted to turn it into a park. Brilliant, I say. So did mayor Bloomberg and the project got underway. For its potential to add so much value to the areas which it passes through. Section one opened in 2009 and there is lots still to go. Read more of the project here. Check out these images below, and the Ted Talk, Robert gave explaining the project.
