BREAKING: 'Huge Crew' Working on High Line

From high above Chelsea, a Curbed reader emails: "no photos, but from the office at 85 10th avenue, you can see a huge crew at work on the High Line above the Chelsea Carwash." The Villager reported last month that this is the prep phase of construction that "will involve tagging and removing railroad tracks and ties (some to be restored to remind park visitors what the structure was built for), removing the gravel ballast, repairing the steel and concrete framework and installing new drainage. Lead-based paint will have to be stripped from the steel structure and anti-pigeon devices will be installed." And so it begins.
