High Line Railroad to City Park Conversion

The people of New York City have long loved the derelict High Line rail structure, long inoperative, that floats along above the streets of Manhattan for over a mile on the Lower East Side. When the city made plans to destroy it citizen action groups sprang to attention, raised funds and eventually made plans to have it saved and converted into a public park. After a rigorous competition between top-notch architects from around the world the above concept design was decided upon and construction is now underway for a gorgeous long elevated park that will provide visitors with a lofted view as they walk through the city.
