Rail Yards Blog is a new online resource created by Friends of the High Line for all news about the West Side Rail Yards planning process. Here, you will find background information on the site, the planning process and the potential rail yards developers, feedback from the surrounding community, and up-to-date press coverage.
We began this blog because we noticed a void in information about this major Manhattan site. While we are primarily concerned with the treatment of the High Line at the rail yards, we are also dedicated to making sure the planning process is as inclusive, transparent and community-oriented as possible.
By sharing information and creating a platform for dialogue, Rail Yards Blog is a tool to stay informed and get involved in shaping this important New York site.
Very interesting article, today’s TImes (April 20), page 26 of the Arts & Leisure section, relating to the West Side rail yards, and more generally to the techniques used in preparing architectural renderings of proposed development projects.
Fantastic blog! I actually love how it’s simple on my eyes as well as the data is well written. I am wondering how I may be notified whenever a new post has been made. I have subscribed to your rss feed which really should do the trick! Have a nice day!
