Rainbow City on the Highline

10 June 2011 | 2 Comments

I’m sure you’ve heard of The Highline in New York (a public park built on a 1.45-mile-long elevated rail structure on Manhattan’s West Side).  Phase 2 has recently opened, and the artists FriendsWithYou have provided an art installation called Rainbow City underneath the new section of The Highline.

“This happy city is made up of intensely colored balloon pieces, encouraging visitors to be active and explore the giant 16,000 square foot playground. Built for adults and children alike, the installation allows for interaction with each art object, making the experience unforgettable.”

If it looks a little familiar, that’s because the piece was originally commissioned for Luminato in Toronto – proof that we’re just as cool as New York.  Sometimes.

    Phase 2 of the High Line and the rooftop brewery at Eataly. As if I needed more excuses to get back to NYC!

    I know! Did you see this post on Hither and Thither about the rooftop bar at Eataly? Dreamy.
