the much anticipated high line redevelopment opened to the public today in new york city’s meatpacking district. the design was created by new york based landscape architects james corner field operations and architects diller scofidio + renfro. the high line was first created in the 1930’s as an elevated rail line and remained in use until the 1980s. after many years of sitting empty, the first section of the high line is now completely renovated and the second part will open next year. the new design features a winding pathway accompanied by wildlife on each side. throughout the strip of elevated terrain the architects also placed benches and other special areas for gathering.
