The New York High Line is a vanguard urbanist project led by Diller Scofido + Renfro which was opened to the public today! The project itself consisted in renovating a 1.45 mile-long elevated steel structure built in the 30’s for freight trains, and turning it into a public park with uninterrupted views of the Hudson River and the city skyline. The end result is brilliant in many many ways!
