Highline

Friends of the High Line announced that construction is beginning; real fences will go up to prepare for reconstruction. The unused elevated train line, snaking from 33rd Street to Gansevort Street will undergo renovation and reconstruction to turn it into a unique public space.

I'm so glad I had a chance to wander around the High Line in its "wild" state. I'm sure the new park, scheduled for completion in 2008, will be spectacular, but there was a certain urban decay charm to the dilapidated High Line.
