GREAT MUSEUMS: ELEVATED THINKING: THE HIGH LINE IN NEW YORK CITY celebrates the stunning transformation of an elevated, abandoned railway into a widely acclaimed public park. Once an active train line that existed to bring food through the region and into the city, the High Line had long ago been neglected and left to decay. With only months to go before the railway was to be torn down, local groups banded together to save the hulking steel structure.
Rising thirty feet above street levelon Manhattan’s west side, the reimagined High Line winds through streets and bygone eras, providing at once an intimate glimpse of neighborhoods and buildings, and an elevated view of New York street activity.
Narrated by Oscar™ award winning actress SUSAN SARANDON, this program details the remarkable efforts of a group of neighborhood activists, real estate developers, philanthropists and city officials and the architects, designers, and landscapers who created this model of urban imagination. Also featured are up-close looks at some of the High Line’s special places and of the people who call this area home.
