This morning, for the first time since 2005, we were blessed with new images of The High Line. Coming at you now in a series of three posts, a look at what's arriving soon to West Chelsea's elevated rail tracks. Brace, as they say.
It's not part of the official press materials, but a new book distributed at today's High Line press event contains a tantalizing glimpse of something called the 18th Street Plaza. Set between Tenth Avenue and the High Line itself—and currently a parking lot—the plaza features a broad stairwell, open space on ground level, and, most excellently, a cantilevered snack bar straight out of The Jetsons. Per official word, the 18th Street Plaza would be built subsequent to Phase One, pending funding and approvals. Cross your fingers.
