It’s One El of a Park

The New York Post ran a two-page spread on the High Line yesterday. The feature focused on the High Line’s impact on the neighborhood:

“The High Line’s presence, with its cutting-edge landscape design, alongside a bevy of art galleries has also attracted some of the world’s most recognized architects, turning the neighborhood into an enclave of state-of-the-art building design dubbed ‘Architects Row.’

Design for Section 1 (Gansevoort to 20th Street), was also covered, including the first public view of a design feature called the Tenth Avenue Square:

“Park visitors will be able to descend into the structure, into what will be called the 10th Avenue Square, and look out, giving them a sense of being suspended over the avenue near 17th Street.”

Last, the article touched on the uncertain future of the High Line at the West Side Rail Yards, which reporter Tom Topousis has reported on before.
