Great example of effective reuse and community action in the campaign to save the High Line of NYC
In 1999, when a historic elevated rail line was about to be demolished in NYC, Robert Hammond and Joshua David “raised the flag,” and began a 10-year battle to not only preserve the trestle, but to breathe new life into it. Just before the breathtaking “High Line” park opened to the public in 2009, Hammond shares insights about seeing a large-scale community project to fruition.
