The potential Phase III of the High Line got some good news yesterday, when word leaked that the city will soon make moves to acquire and, perhaps, preserve the northern portion of the elevated rail bed. But what's new with Phase II, the 10-block portion starting at 20th Street that's scheduled for a 2010 debut? Plenty! Check out these spy shots sent from high above Tenth Avenue and 23rd Street, where a hole has been cut out of the High Line to clear some space for a new staircase, of which future HL23 residents will apparently have a great view. Meanwhile, Chicago may get its own High Line-style train tracks makeover, called the Bloomingdale Trail. Followers.
