High Line Construction Chronicles: High Line Soils Itself

New, 6 comments

When is a pile of dirt not just a pile of dirt? When it's dumped onto Manhattan's future park-in-the-sky, of course. According to the High Line Blog, this layer of subsoil has just been delivered to the section of track above 19th Street. The subsoil goes under the more refined topsoil, which will get planted in the fall. Of course, all this horticultural madness will eventually yield this, the most spectacular public project in the history of the city no the history of the world and you cannot convince us otherwise because why can't you just let us have this one special thing in our lives instead of shooting us down and ruining our dreams like you ruin everything else, mom!
