    An underground park with natural sunlight? It seems too good to be true, but soon it enough it is sure to become a reality.

Fourteen feet of water flooded the facility and left the state with a $600,000 bill in damage repairs. Though some repairs have been made, it still remains vacant, and Governor Cuomo has decided to close the medium-security prison and sell it instead as part of his 2013-14 budget.

  • Manhattan's High Line Concept Is Going Global By Janna Allen | March 07, 2013

    The High Line may soon have company. While it has remained one-out-of-the-two railroad tracks transformed into parks, similar concepts have been popping up all over the world.

It was previously an old misused railroad track--the West Side Line--which met its end in the 1990s.

With typical New York City speed, this 26-acre storage yard for the LIRR will soon be the central plaza of a new series of developments linking together the High Line, Hudson River Park and Hudson Boulevard. The site will eventually host 16 buildings including offices, residences and even a school, while Hudson Boulevard will be extended north to West 38th. Late last year, Related Companies began work on the first building of the project, a 51-story headquarters for luxury-goods maker Coach.
