I wish these new developments were kept half a block away from the actual High Line Park and the low rise existing structures were preserved ...

I really love what they've done, but I think any further development should have to have a height equal to or below the highline, unless it's replacing a building that is already above the highline.

There are great open spaces that I think are important, and it'd be a shame if essentially the whole highline eventually became cavernous.

Also, that Manhattan Mini Storage is in desperate need of a mural (or, in a perfect world, demolition.)

Can anybody from NYC tell me how the area around the highline used to be before the highline was built? Was it lively, despite the rusty railtrack above or rather vacant no mans land? Did retail exist?

Here's a thread on this actually (going way back):
https://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1374161

Honestly, much of the west side was a dump. I was somewhat shocked when I moved to NYC in the 00's(I no longer live there unfortunately) at how underdeveloped the west side was. It just seemed like most of the buildings had been left to fall into disrepair, and the only thing still standing were gas stations, storage spaces, and garages. This started to change before the High Line, but the HL has definitely sped it up exponentially.

Here's the meatpacking district in the 90's:

Here's some of the same, but also includes Chelsea:

It looked thrid worldish back then. From dump wasteland to multiomillionaire neighborhood in such a short time. Reminds me of how much Hells Kitchen has changed over the same time, even Tribeca and Noho and such werent as nice and glitzy back then as they are now. There is this hype about how Dubai has changed dramatically, and yes it did so, and how much development took place in chinese cities, but the very drastic change here gets overlooked, which is sad. I mean, Manhattan changed so much, (even Brooklyn will get 2 supertalls), Harlem is a desired neighborhood and even Inwood is slowly getting small fractions of the gentrification cake.

Just 30 posts in here seem a bit understated for a proposed "megathread"...

If you don't understand what the word means there's always Google.

Yeah, thanks for the advice. Now let's look it up:

(Internet slang) An extremely long discussion thread.

Well...

I prefer to have a megathread that is slowly filling up, then a megamegathread with pages and pages of nonsense. I also feel oike had it been opened in 2010 it would be much bigger by mow, but since it was opened in 2016 when most of development around the HL was done or approaching being done, we were kinda limited to what to post here.

It's not the thread that is 'mega' here.. It's the Highline itself and it's surroundings that is mega-interesting and well worth deserving it's own discussion thread! I was there in the summer of 2015 and walked the line (with round eyes and a smile on my face ). It was superb and extremely enjoyable back then already, but I imagine it has become 10 times more marvelous since then with all these amazing new buildings that have emerged on it's immediate surroundings and the whole Hudson Yards mega dewelopment at the end of the elevated park like a crown on top of it all! This is one of my top attraction for sure next time I am sure to visit New York in the future like it was already back then.

erbse, that is an odd wrong definition found on wiktionary that needs to be edited there. Try to avoid wrong information. A megathread is a thread that puts the subjects of a large number of separate threads into one thread.

It's awesome! I was there in December, it was so cold, but it was awesome and well worth the cold! Hopefully next time I'm there, I can go on 30HY's deck.

Don't you feel insulted droneriot, I just wanted to see more updates in this compilation thread, as I really like the developments around Highline.

Some nice buildings in this thread. Its great to see new york has somewhat gotten over its glazed curtain walling fad thats still enveloping most of the world unfortunately. Modern architecture can be so much better than that, in fact it gives modern architecture a bad name and people associate modern architecture with being sterile and boring when it doesnt have to be at all
