The High Line Park in New York’s meat packing district is one of the most exciting projects I have encountered in a long time. When I first read about it, I was sceptical about how successful the park would be and afraid it might turn out to be a short-lived gimmick. Instead, on a beautiful day of sunshine I discovered a refreshing park, high in the sky, set against a backdrop of old warehouses
juxtaposed with innovative architectural design, birds and even butterflies. I had such a relaxing walk through this park; a special retreat amid the New York hustle.
