If you’re in New York over the next months, don’t miss the new High Line Park. I know many architects, designers and urban planners who fought long and hard to transform this old railroad bed into a beautiful park for people and birds.
The success of the High Line illustrates the powerful nexus of culture and economic growth. Thanks to the creation of this new park, dozens of new stores, condos and hotels have opened up along its path, reviving rundown neighborhoods and generating jobs, wealth and taxes.
This is a big win for Mayor Mike Bloomber, the New York design set, the public and the city as a whole. See, you can do progressive urban planning and promote economic growth at the same time.
