In 1934 the City of New York christened the High Line rail line,which was uniquely designed to connect directly into factories andwarehouses, allowing trains to roll right inside buildings. Milk,meat, produce and raw and manufactured goods could be transportedand unloaded without disturbing traffic on the streets.

|

That was yesteryear. Fast forward to 1980, when there was anoutcry to demolish the High Line—at the time a collection ofabandoned and growing grasslands and forests on the old raid bed.Luckily, early versions of preservationists raised a ruckus andfought for a stay of execution.

|

Fast forward one more time, and you have today's High Line,which is among New York City's most cherished and visited venues,spanning blocks of the city's West Side.

|

About three weeks ago my wife and I strolled the High Linethrough jammed-packed crowds, most from foreign lands far and wide.We exited the High Line and marveled at the hotels, restaurants,high-end brand-name shops, and more, that the High Line hasspawned.

|

Lesson learned: our urban artifacts are treasures, and our youngdevelopers should focus on redevelopment of the “oldstuff.”
