High Line: The Inside Story of NYC’s Park in the Sky

Manhattan’s wildly successful High Line Park — an old elevated rail line that was retrofitted into a stunning park — cost about $153 million. At first glance it might seem like a big investment for a park, but consider the benefits.

Not only does the city take care of a eyesore, but the popularity of High Line has brought in an estimated $2 billion in new developments, the New York Times reports.

On October 28, the two men responsible for this innovative urban reclamation project, Joshua David and Robert Hammond, are coming to 92YTribeca to share their story of reclamation on the High Line. More info and tickets, here.
