Organizers Pushing Philly High Line
"'We have all these beautiful urban views, and yet you feel like you're in a country meadow,' said Hamilton Street resident Sarah McEneaney, 55, who has been lobbying, along with John Struble, for nearly a decade to transform the viaduct into an elevated public park with spectacular, panoramic skyline views.
'It immediately transports you from a bustling urban environment to one much more quiet with a lot of birds and a lot of plants.'
Now, after eight years of prodding, McEneaney, a painter, and Struble, a furniture maker, have succeeded in getting city officials and other prominent Philadelphians on board with the viaduct park idea."
The viaduct would be a similar space to revitalize into a park, like the High Line in New York City.
