The High Line

I herewith draw your attention to the High Line, an unused, elevated railway that cuts through Manhattan's Meat Packing district. Some good, artsy pictures here, the official site of the organization that wants to redevelop the High Line here and a book with even better artsy pictures (and an essay by brilliant Harvard landscape/urban historian John Stilgoe) here.

The High Line (book)

This thing is so freakin' Gotham City you wouldn't believe it. The line has that quality of urban furniture that you don't see it unless you're looking for it...and then, when you look up, there's a rail road up there, in iron.

Friends of the High Line, the organization I linked above, is exhibiting finalists for redevelopment proposals this month and next. Check 'em out.
