must visit

the high line in nyc. apparently it opened a day early today to rave reviews. abandoned, elevated rail tracks transformed into public space for walking, lounging, planting some green stuff.

more detailed information and good photos here and here.

i wish LA were more walkable. but then it wouldn't be LA.

another successful project by james corner field operations and diller scofidio + renfro, two firms whose work i admire. i'll have to go see for myself.


  1. Hmm...we are going to NYC in July....

  2. The Hubster and I were just commenting yesterday that we would miss the ability walk to everything here.

  3. That sounds really cool.


comments are tasty!
