New York offers another model of urban development for other cities to follow again. The ‘High Line’ elevated park shows that crafting the city’s image through its architecture is not limited to erecting more high-rise buildings, which do not interact with their surroundings. This elevated rail line had been known since the late 1980s as an open space overgrown with indigenous plants. The hard-to-find urban green space inspired the neighborhood communities to fight for its preservation. The city administration officially approved the plan for the High Line park project in 2006 and in 2009 the park was officially open to the public. The High Line project not only opens up a new and unusual vista of the old industrial zone like the Meatpacking District, it also opens up a fresh avenue for green living by making the most of the specific features of an area.
