repurposed infrastructures

Opportunism, plain and simple. A former railway and a means of egress...
Some guys in the meatpacking district had the vision and perseverance to shepherd the redevelopment of a derelict viaduct into one of the most beautiful and dynamic places in all of New York City. At the end of the High Line Park, a longtime resident of Chelsea has turned her fire escape into a stage; instead of retreating from the masses, the Renegade Cabaret was born. Now you can watch one from the other.
