High Line in NYC by James Corner Field Operations and Diller Scofidio + Renfro

“The High Line is already a world-renowned destination and New York City icon, and with the addition of Section Two, it makes for an even more enjoyable experience,” said New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg. “The second half-mile adds different views and new features, making it distinct from the first section but no less remarkable.

Designed by New York-based design firms James Corner Field Operations and Diller Scofidio + Renfro, the High Line is a city park built on a chunk of elevated railroad. New York has invested $115 million on the project but it is being credited with producing an estimated $2 billion in private investment in the surrounding West Chelsea area, plus 8,000 construction jobs.”
