Don’t be scared by the German title in the link — it’s a video narrated in English, about an elevated train trestle in NYC…

A five minute video report (in English) about Edward Norton and the group “Friends of the High Line,” a 2-kilometre long elevated train trestle, abandoned for decades, which the “Friends,” via extensive community activism, managed to convert into “arguably the largest public greenspace in New York City in 100 years.” It’s due to open in 2008.
