L.A.'s High Line West

A new linear park project near L.A.'s port seeks to ride the success of New York City's High Line park.

"Wilmington's version, for now known as the Harry Bridges Boulevard Buffer, neither extends along an abandoned railroad nor is it particularly narrow like New York's prototype. Instead, it consists of a 30-acre, nine-block-wide stretch of sloping land that separates the busy Port of Wilmington from a residential neighborhood to the north. The $55 million project is well underway and set to be completed by next summer."

The project is part of the Port's efforts to create more public space and improve relations with the neighboring community.
