NYC’s High Line Reclaims Green Space

A couple of months ago we blogged about the High Line, the urban transformation project in New York City. What was once an old traintrack trough Manhattan will be a next generation park across the city.

Landscape wins terrain in densed parts of the city through the process of reclaiming the landscape. People in Rotterdam will follow this project with special interest as Rotterdam is heading up to transform the former railway Hofpleinlijn to a new urban park in the city. Yesterday, PSFK came up with a first picture of an executed bit of the High Line project. The first completed section will open in the coming weeks. As PSFK tells, and we have to believe them, all of the original railroad tracks were numbered, removed, and replaced. And the light looks brilliant.
