This area is a wonderful example of public and private partnerships working together to create a new way for New Yorker’s and visitors to experience the City. The landscape of the High Line has been designed to change with the seasons, so every visit becomes a unique experience. This talk will show the history of the neighborhood from the 1800’s and the changes that have led to the starchitecture that has been built along the High Line. Hudson Yards is the largest private construction project in the history of the United States.
