Walk the High Line

Back in May I was lucky enough to take a trip to New York, something I’d been meaning to do for years but the opportunity never arose. The Big Apple is now officially at the top of my favourite city list, and it’s easy to see why. One of the things I enjoyed while I was there, was strolling through the High Line, a new 1.5 mile public park built on a disused train line that stretches above the Meatpacking District and houses 210 species of perennials, grasses, shrubs and trees. So I was really pleased to hear that Diller Scofidio + Renfro, the architectural firm behind the parks creation, have won a D&AD award in the Environmental Design category. Bravo!
