Grand Theft High Line

New, 14 comments

First Seattle, and now Chicago wants to steal the High Line idea, for a three-mile-long (2x the High Line's length!) train-trestle-to-park conversion called Bloomingdale Trail. This one already has a website and everything: "Imagine a 3-mile-long elevated linear park running through the heart of Chicago, connecting neighborhoods, the river, and our great park system. Built from a former rail line, the Bloomingdale Trail will make us healthier, get us to school and work faster, and provide us with great chances to play and mingle." [Bloomingdale Trail]
