This is definitely one of our profession’s great recent successes, but ya can’t make everybody happy. Interesting that 3.7 million people visited the High Line last year – Monticello, the home of Thomas Jefferson (if you need reminding…) gets 500,000 a year, in a good year..
Thanks for posting, Doug. The writer seems to have very muddied thinking, IMHO. They simultaneously make fun of the original NYT piece for decrying extreme gentrification, and talk about solutions to the problem of gentrification…and end with saying both extreme gentrification and poverty should be acknowledged – but the original NYT piece was not about poverty, it was about neighborhoods.
I don’t really care, either way – I just think it is nice to see a successful work of landscape architecture, newly built. It seems to me one doesn’t see that too often, these days. Maybe it’s just where I live.
