Forget the derecho. Here's a new reason to freak out: DNAinfo got ahold of new renderings showing off the updated designs for the High Line's final section. They're so new that they all say "DRAFT. Not for Reproduction/Distribution," which makes us feel a little bad, but who cares! So what are the cool new things? There will be an actual boxcar turned into a food stand. The kid's play area has some pretty sweet-looking moveable exploration features. There will be a picnic area with umbrellas that twirl in the wind. The walkway up 12th Avenue has been expanded. And more! Get the deets in the gallery. The city obtained the final section earlier this week, and construction should start by year's end.
