High Line Garden in NYC

I visited the High Line a few years ago, before it was finished, and I hope to visit this summer and walk the entire length of this beautiful elevated garden – even bigger than our own Bridge of Flowers.

The High Line ended abruptly here in May of 2010, and it was completed at the Rail Yards until September 2014.

But now there is a proposal for a Greenline garden that would turn the diagonal 40 blocks of Broadway into a garden. I can’t seem to copy a photo here, but visit my friend Rochelle Greayer at her Pith+Vigor blog for wonderful imaginations of this proposed garden, a turning Broadway into a Greenline Garden. This idea by Perkins Eastman architects would be a beautiful addition to the New York park system and  all that greenery would have positive environmental effects.

Adele Peters has more information which includes the fact that the Greenline is ‘just a concept” but wouldn’t it be wonderful if such a park could be a reality. What do you think?
