The Highline Park, NY

The High Line design is led by James Corner Field Operations, with Diller Scofidio + Renfro.
The High Line is located on Manhattan's West Side. It runs from Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District to 34th Street, between 10th & 11th Avenues.

Modern but playful design that looks like the grass is being "combed".

Great combination of materials for the park benches.

Pre-existing railroad tracks used as planting dividers.
