Manhattan Goes Green
Robert Hammond Keynotes - Keynotes by Robert Hammond focus on his personal attempt to preserve public spaces in New York City....
This abandoned railway in Manhattan stretches over one and a half miles long, and as described by Hammond, boasts beautiful wild growth of plants, flowers and trees. Inspired by the railway's natural greenery, Robert Hammond facilitated a design competition for the three sections of the park. The first section is already complete and features an amphitheater and plans to host a variety of new museums. With the construction of the two other parts underway, Robert Hammond is very proud of the new use of the High Line, as he believes it is a public space that helps people explore their city and interact with each other.
