Remarks by Jonathan Broder General Counsel, Conrail; Adjunct Professor of Law, Temple University School of Law.

The High Line Park located on the far west side of midtown Manhattan has been open to the public for only two and a half years. Yet, it has already attained iconic status as a landmark, destination location, act of civic boldness, engine of economic growth, and breathtaking artistic vision. Indeed, it has become such a subject of attention, glitz, and “hipness,” that numerous other high lines across the country are now being proposed. Come hear the “inside story” from the railroad’s point of view on how this incredible rails to trails conversion came about.
