Highline by Floto+Warner 13.07.09

words Johanna Agerman

We covered the opening of New York’s High Line in the August issue of icon and got so much great photography from photographers Floto+Warner that we decided to make a gallery of it.

The High Line is a park with a difference: it runs along a former elevated goods railway built in the 1930s. The park is designed by landscape architect James Corner Field Operations and architect Diller, Scofidio + Renfro and it opened in June.

It runs for nine blocks between the Meatpacking District and Chelsea, passing through several buildings along 10th Avenue and stopping abruptly at 20th Street. Phase two, which landscapes another ten blocks of line, opens next year.
