Elevated Parks

A couple of months after Witold Rybczynski dismissed High Line copycats in other cities of seeking "quick fixes to revive their moribund downtowns," the New York Times has a more even-handed story about efforts to convert abandoned rail lines into parks, including the Bloomingdale Trail. Philadelphia and St. Louis are also working on similar plans. Design work is currently underway on the Bloomingdale Trail, a planned elevated bike path/park, which is expected to cost between $40 million and $75 million to build. [New York Times]
