High Line Phase 2 To Feature Flyovers, Thickets, And More Lounging

New York City’s High Line — a formerly derelict railway line transformed into a 1.5 mile-long park — is about to start construction on Phase 2 of its expansion. The first section, opened in spring 2009, acted as a short, but beautiful teaser of what was to come; running from 14th Street to 20th Street. Phase 2, which will be completed in spring 2011 will expand the park dramatically from 20th-30th street.

Fast Company managed to get their paws on some slick, new video showing us what to expect — and frankly, it all looks stunning. As Gawker says, there will be more “lawns, bleachers, entrances, elevators, see-through decks, and a brand new garden space called the Chelsea Thicket.” We’re also excited about the new “flyover” section. From Fast Company,

Maybe the park’s grandest feature, a “flyover” where the walkway rises above the High Line’s level, and into the shady canopy of sumac trees. The plants fill in the emptied space below, and to adapt to the shade cast from overhead, they’ve been selected from the among plants that naturally grown in the shadows between New York’s tall buildings.

Check out the beautiful video below:
