The High Line, while being undeniably successful in its renovation that turned a delapidated railroad into public park in New York City, is an allegory for the city in that it is a never ending project constantly receiving new developments to it. But the city's Park Department has released their plans for the last portion of the 1.45-mile-long linear park which includes a 4,500-square-foot piazza. The specific area, which would turn out in the opposite direction from the original structure, would sit above 10th Avenue at 30th Street, would be the largest open space in the structure. It would also have space for temporary art installations.
The plan was approved about two weeks ago, and construction is expected to start in late 2016. Funding would be provided by the Parks Department, which said they would front a $31 million budget.
