The High Line: new links

Friends of the High Line have put up two videos of interest to anyone following the progress of this new elevated park in Manhattan. (See previous post.)

The first is a history of the High Line, narrated by Ethan Hawke.

This one is a silent presentation on design of the High Line by Diller Scofidio + Renfro, the project architect, and Field Operations, the landscape architect. Typically, the architect and landscape architect downplay the horticultural aspect of the project: there is no mention of Piet Oudolf, who is designing the plantings.

  1. I'm having trouble with feeds to PICTURES JUST PICTURES .

    Followers cannot access it at present through their Google Dashboards and it isn't possible to click to the blog through Google Readers either. I'm assuming people using other Readers will be experiencing the same problem.

    Please excuse this format message - but I'm cutting and pasting it to 'Followers' and to other people who have left messages on PICTURES JUST PICTURES from time to time.

    When I have worked out what to do - I will. Meanwhile, I will continue to post daily.

    You can either use this link PICTURES JUST PICTURES or click through from the sidebar of LOOSE AND LEAFY.

    Internet Explorer Bookmarks still work

    (Members of Blotanical may sympathise if I say 'Isn't it Wonderful!')
