It isn’t often that over a mile stretch of Manhattan waterfront becomes available for the development of commercial & residential innovations. But that is what happened when the meat market, freight and passenger ship travel left West Chelsea.
The change began with the prospect of turning a long-unused set of elevated tracks into the High Line Park. Some of the world’s most prominent architects—Renzo Piano, Frank Gehry, Zaha Hadid—have designed spectacular structures here that make this neighborhood a world-class architectural destination.
Tour highlights include:
• Piano's Whitney Museum of American Art
• Gehry's "Glass Schooner"
• Polshek's "Voyeur’s Hotel"
• Nouvel's "Vision Machine"
• Hadid's first residential project in New York City
