maybe you heard taylor swift has a new album out?

ha.

anyway, her instantly hot single cardigan, which btw is indeed a pop masterpiece if you have not heard it, alludes to the meatpacking district and name drops the high line.

here it is w/lyrics:

also, the 18th street plaza, the final development of the high line park itself i think, is underway below w18th street.


18TH ST. PLAZA
Currently under design, the 18th St. Plaza will be located at street level, along 10th Ave. The 10,000 square foot site will feature a large, curving planting bed with low plantings and trees. A billboard anchors the site to the north and will be repurposed to display art, and a new stair and elevator to the High Line will be constructed with the plaza.
