The High Line

As I mentioned in my previous post below, my husband is just back from New York and boy was he excited to tell me about The High Line. It is my son's favorite book, The Curious Garden, come to life!

The Curious Garden is about a little boy named Liam, and how he discovers a struggling garden and decides to take care of it. As time passes, the garden spreads throughout the dark, gray city, transforming it into a lush, green world.

The High Line, is an elevated park built atop an abandoned railway running thru the Meatpacking District to 34th Street in Manhattan, NY. Transformed by landscape architects James Corner Field Operations, with architects Diller Scofidio + Renfro and maintained by Friends of the High Line, the rehabilitated space provides a lush, green, elevated paradise for Manhattanites and all its visitors.

Check out filmmaker Austin Dill's short video of the park here to get a virtual slice of it for yourself.
