Pigeons Are Disturbing High Line Development

October 26, 2006



High Line photos aren't exactly rare, but, since we happened to be on a nearby roof recently, we took a few.

It looks like we were onto something. According to Katie Lorah, media and project manager for Friends of the High Line, a new construction phase has begun. Deterring birds is one aspect of it: Pigeons are roosting in the beams, damaging concrete and steel and creating "unpleasant" conditions below. To read about the new phase, called "Site Preparation," check out this week's newsletter. http://www.thehighline.org/newslette...6.html#story04




And the mess under the High Line is the footprint for Andre Balazs' new hotel, The Standard, which will jut through the elevated park.
