The High Line - A Unique Community Space in New York City
Christopher (Chris) McNally owns and leads as president of Falcon Project Quality Management, a New York City-based firm that represents the interests of property owners during design and construction projects. Apart from his responsibilities at Falcon, Chris McNally maintains an interest in urban spaces and supports the High Line, an urban space in his community.
A community park located on elevated train tracks in New York City, the High Line receives the majority of its funding through the nonprofit Friends of the High Line, which along with the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation cares for the space.
After the discontinuation of train service on the tracks in the 1980s, area residents collaborated to form Friends of the High Line in an effort to preserve the structure and make it into a useful public space. The group began establishing a planning framework in the early 2000s, and after the city accepted ownership of the tracks in 2005, groundbreaking on the project occurred the following year. The first section of the High Line opened to the public in 2009, with additional sections opening in the years since.
Today, the High Line hosts a variety programming and events throughout the year. Visitors to the park can enjoy walking tours, art exhibitions, live dance and spoken word parties, cultural festivals, wellness classes, and more. For additional information on the High Line, visit www.thehighline.org.
