The Atlanta BeltLine is an ambitious proposal to transform 22 miles of vine-covered railroad into parks, housing and public transit around the city.
Paul Signorelli's insight:

New York Times update on a long-term attempt in Atlanta, GA to "transform 22 miles of vine-covered railroad into parks, housing and public transit around the city." More information is available through "The Plan for a Walkable Atlanta," a report presented to Mayor Shirley Franklin on September 14, 2004 by members of the Mayor's Walkable Atlanta Task Force" (PDF available online at http://www.peds.org/pdf/walkable.pdf).

Paul Signorelli's insight:

Magnificent community project in New York; from the project website: "The High Line is a public park built on an historic freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan’s West Side. It is owned by the City of New York, and maintained and operated by Friends of the High Line. Founded in 1999 by community residents, Friends of the High Line fought for the High Line’s preservation and transformation at a time when the historic structure was under the threat of demolition. It is now the non-profit conservancy working with the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation to make sure the High Line is maintained as an extraordinary public space for all visitors to enjoy."
