In one of the most exciting bits of news lately, Section 1 of the L+U favorite High Line will open to the public next week. This on the heels some travel press from across the pond, and the announcement of a large gift from some local celebs.. couldn't be better timing, as today's post reveals the flurry of vegetal activity up on this fabulous elevated park space.

In anticipation of the event, Sundance Channel has a series of digital shorts on the project... here's a sneak peek at one with James Corner and Piet Oudolf, but definitely check out the entire collection here to see some designers and celebrities riffing on this linear marvel. [Note 06.06.09 - I pulled the Corner/Oudolf video because it never seemed to want to load from the embedded viewer... they all seem to work on the Sundance site though, so check it out there].
