Everyone knows that urban living is less impactful on the environment, but whether you’ve lived in a city, you additionally know that it’s fundamental to get your fix of open space and nature – particularly in a city like New York City. That’s why projects like the High Line, where they literally took an old abandoned rail track and converted it into a gorgeous elevated park are both so interesting and so crucial.
I visited it whenI was in NYC a month ago, and can vouch for the fact that it is amazing. It’s beautiful and strange and just fits into the urban landscape in such a seamless way.
Take a look at the High Line website for more info and photos. plus fascinating is the story about how it came to be. Take a look!
