A Park With No Enemies
April 30th, 2007

The High Line, a project to create a greenway along an abandoned elevated rail way on the West Side, is no longer just a successful, innovative park project, according an article in New York Magazine, it will soon become a brand name – adorning buildings, restaurants, and even nightclubs, like the recently opened High Line Ballroom.

“Everyone in New York City has been so supportive of the High Line,” Josh Wood, organizer of the High Line Festival (an arts project curated by David Bowie) told the magazine. “It’s probably the one public-works project that no one has anything bad to say about.”

The magazine also feaures a history of the elevated railway and the quest to turn it into a park and a look at a half a dozen new luxury apartment buildings and condos going up along the parkway.
