11th Street Bridge Park

I know I am behind the times as a newcomer to the city so I just learned about this project last week.  I am a big fan of the High Line in NYC, so I have high hopes for the 11th Street Bridge Park.  This effort, headed up by THEARC, to turn a currently unused area into a place for the whole community is backed by their efforts to take community input before construction starts.  The design contest for the bridge just went out and they were just looking for a Marketing and Development person so the plan must be moving forward pretty rapidly with some big capital behind it.  I can’t wait to see its development in action in the next few years!
