Narrated by Academy Award®-winning actress Susan Sarandon, this documentary film celebrates the stunning transformation of an abandoned, decaying elevated railway into a widely acclaimed public park.
The film tells the story of the neighborhood activists, city leaders, architects, designers, and landscapers who transformed the High Line into a totally new kind of urban space—a public park that is also an art gallery, a botanic garden, and much more. Breathtaking footage, shot over the course of two years, captures the dynamic beauty of all four seasons in the park.
Elevated Thinking: The High Line in New York City was produced as part of the award-winning documentary series Great Museums®.
